I traveled to Hirosaki City and Aomori City, Aomori Prefecture for four days and three nights. In this article, I will write about Aomori bay area.

Following my previous article, I continued to travel in Aomori city.
Utou Shrine was built in 807. When I visited the shrine, I just happened to see a couple have a wedding ceremony there.
The Sannai-Maruyama Site is one of the Japan’s largest historical sites consisting of remains of human settlement from approximately 5500 to 4000 years ago. The site features several pit-houses and stilt-houses unearthed since archeological excavation began in 1992.
Aomori Tourist Information Center, ASPAM
The ASPAM is a triangle-shaped building after the image of the letter “A” from “Aomori”. It is the central facility for local information about Aomori and has a wide selection of shops and entertainment. Also, I had my last supper in Aomori there.
Then, I moved to Aomori airport and returned to Tokyo.
Now I finished all of my travel article to Aomori prefecture. This time, I only visited Hirosaki city and Aomori city due to time constraint, but there are a lot of attractive areas in Aomori prefecture. So, if I have any chance, I would like to visit Aomori again (- if you are interested in traveling to Aomori, the following link may be useful).
