Nakamachi Komise-dori Street中町こみせ通り
Nakamachi Komise-dori Street is a shipping district on the east side of Konan Kuroishi Station, Konan Railway. This arcade, called a “komise,” is lined with wooden structures built to keep snow and direct sunlight off the shops. The area retains its Edo period atmosphere and Cultural Properties, and the rare Group of Traditional Buildings has made it one of Japan’s Top 100 City Streets. There are volunteer guides available to show visitors through Nakamachi Komise-dori Street. The Komise Festival held every September features Tsugaru Shamisen Performances and Tsugaru folksongs, as well as wind instrument music performances by local high school students.

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.
