Lonely Planet review
Aomori is famous for a number of speciality items, including scallops, codfish, apples, pickled vegetables and many, many other foods that are all laid out at this seafood and produce market. There are also a handful of counter restaurants where you can get a fresh sanshoku-don (rice topped with scallops, fish roe and sea urchin roe) or a hot bowl of rāmen (noodles). Open early, it's also a good place to stock up on snacks for the next leg of your journey.
