Introducing Aomori

Aomori, the prefectural capital, is a stopover point for travellers on their way to Hokkaidō and a regional transportation hub. In 2010 the Tōhoku shinkansen (bullet train) line was extended to Aomori, giving the city reason to spruce itself up, including new development along the harbour. There are several worthwhile museums scattered around the city, but Aomori's most famous attraction is its Nebuta festival.
