    It is a river which flows to the Pacific Ocean from Lake towada. You can enjoy very difficult mountain Oirase Gorge known along the way. From easy parallel to national highway, but unfortunately many cars to be congestion during the tourist season, there is a catch. If no traffic jams, perfectly clean Vista though

    You also can't only by private car traffic around the city quickly compensated. May and October leaves are recommended. It is recommended because hotels are rare in the area, enjoy the overnight food in Hachinohe.

Where to stay in Aomori

Aomori offers a range of accommodations following the shore of Aomore Bay, so you can easily match the location of your hotel with the things you want to do. The main street, Shinmachi, which starts at the train station, offers a range of hotels, with prices tending to decrease as you move away from the station. A number of budget hotels sit between the highway and the Arakawa River, and you can also find a group of hotels further away in Asamushionsen, next to the aquarium. Check out a few traditional "ryokan" (guesthouses) next to the railway stationl, or look for family-friendly hotels downtown.
