Seibi-en (盛美園)

The Seibi-en which was nationally designated as a Place of Scenic Beauty in 1953, is a building blending both Japanese and western styles and was built to look out onto the gardens. The first floor is pure Japanese style and the second floor is designed in a western style. This building has a unique beauty that fuses with the Japanese gardens and shows traces of Japan’s Westernization movement during the Meiji period. The second floor is not currently open to the public. It is approximately a 10 minute walk from Tsugaru Onoe Station on the Konan Railway Konan Line.

          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.
