  • Aomori visited for the first time in the work. Memorial residing near the station, was hit by the first snow of the age and timing. It is close to the train station. If it is fine what about 5 minutes. Intact throughout the ship is to exhibit, and recreate the old-world market brain lives in the Northeast we are. But now it's different. Train hangar is seen exhibit deep emotion in we received.
