  • Just visited this building to get some souvenirs. It was very quiet and I ended up buying stuff in and close to the station! You could hear "Nebuta festival's music" in the building which was great!

  • Place was quite nice. We came here for the Christmas market but it was quite a wet evening with sleet, so didn't really get to enjoy.

  • A lovely theater, observation deck, restaurants and souvenir shops. The 2D movie was fine, but try to get the 3D movie time if you can.
  • Place to buy your souvenirs and gifts in Aomori. Must visit when in town. It also has a bakery for apple pie.
