Great value close to Aomori train station
Posted Apr 22, 2016
Very good service at front desk, with helpful staff who recommended excellent nearby sushi and local food establishments. Aomori is a small town. During non-festival periods, very laid back and assuming. They made visitors feel welcome, and we never had any trouble walking to famous sights nearby: ASPAM visitor center, Hakkoda Maru ferry museum, Wa Rasse Nebuta Museum. Eating establishments were not crowded, and you can get great sushi and seafood in this city, especially the local specialty, scallops harvested from bay nearby. It's a very easy train ride to the historical town of Hirosaki, known for its castle and cherry blossom viewing in late April.
