Seafood Extravaganza

05/07/2020
We stayed in the city of Aomori for a few nights as part of a tour with Japan Ski Tours. During our time in the region we visited Hakkoda Ski Area, Sukayu Onsen, Aomori Spring Ski Resort and a really cool onsen out on the west coast of Aomori Prefecture.

We’ve driven through Aomori City a couple of times before when there were massive snow walls around the place, and it seemed like it was a fulltime job for many of the locals to clear snow. This time around, Japan was having a very lean snow season so there was no snow in town which looked a bit strange!

In the evenings the guides took us to some great restaurants where thankfully the guides ordered for us in Japanese because our language skills aren’t too extensive. The cuisine had a major emphasis on local seafood and was a major highlight of the trip. There was also a theme with the décor and characters that are associated with the Nebuta Festival.

We’ve stayed at Hakkoda and Aomori Spring Resort before, so it was nice to stay in the city instead this time and get more cultural influences.
