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.
