Aomori Tourist Information Center, ASPAM (青森県観光物産館アスパム)

3.5

Observation Tower

Built as a place to promote Aomori’s local products in 1986, this facility also introduces guests to local industry and folk entertainment. The origin of the name ASPAM comes from the initials in a direct English translation of the facility’s Japanese name, which becomes Aomori, Sightseeing, Products, Mansion. From the observatory on the 13th floor visitors can enjoy a view of the urban center of Aomori, the Shimokita, Tsugaru, and Natsudomari peninsulas, Mutsu Bay, and the Aomori Bay Bridge. Be sure to take in the incredible 360-degree panoramic view.

Review of Aomori Prefecture Tourist Centerl ASPAM

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2020/03/05 Visited for souvernirs!
Just visited this building to get some souvenirs. It was very quiet and I ended up buying stuff in and close to the station!
You could hear Nebuta festivals music in the building which was great!
Reviewed:2019/12/25 Came here for the Christmas market
Place was quite nice. We came here for the Christmas market but it was quite a wet evening with sleet, so didnt really get to enjoy.
Reviewed:2019/11/05 AND A FOOD FAIR WHEN I ARRIVED THERE
This is one of the centers in the city to get around from, it is more than just a tourist office, it has bus information and an office for other parts of the Aomori area.

          Centuries-old stories of samurai at Kakunodate and the remains of millennia-old archaeological sites including the likes of Isedotai invite history buffs to delve into Aomori’s fascinating history. As the most northern prefecture on the Japanese mainland, Aomori enjoys a cooler climate, which makes it a welcome escape from the southern cities for combining castles, art galleries, and summer festivals with the great outdoors.
