Things to do in Aomori

  • Aomori Nebuta Festival (青森ねぶた祭り aomori nebuta matsuri). August 2–7.This is Aomori's most famous festival. The town suddenly becomes very lively, with many street stalls. The main feature is the evening parade with huge illuminated paper lanterns and costumed dancers. The final day of the festival concludes with an extensive fireworks display while some of the Nebuta lanterns float around the bay on boats. Everybody can join the parade, as long as they wear the festival costume. To rent the costume, enquire at the tourist center next to the train station.
  • Machinaka Onsen (青森まちなかおんせん aomori machinaka onsen) (turn right leaving Aomori Station and walk 2 blocks to Route 7. Turn left; the onsen will be on the left about a block later.).
