Let us introduce the 3 best things to do in Aomori city. If you have some spare time after or before visiting Hakkoda, there are so many fun things you can do in Aomori!

 

1. Go to Furukawa Fish Market and try Nokkedon 

Furukawa Fish Market is central Aomori’s public fish market, and is also known as the Aomori Gyosai Center. Rows of vendors offer all kinds of local seafood and other items. Visitors can use the seafood they buy to make their very own seafood donburi, or nokkedon!

2. Nebuta Warasse Museum 

Aomori Nebuta Festival is one of the three largest festivals in the Tohoku region bringing in more than 3 million visitors from across Japan, which is held in central Aomori City between August 2nd through August 7th.

The Nebuta Warasse Museum in Aomori City is a great place to experience the beauty of the Nebuta festival displays even when a festival is not being held. These gigantic displays are truly works of art, and along with the music and sounds within the museum, this is the next best thing to enjoying the displays at an actual festival. And since it is indoors, the displays can be enjoyed at all times of year. Its location next to the Aomori City port makes it both easily accessible, and an easy addition to a travel itinerary.
