Aomori (青森県, Aomori-ken) is filled with beautiful landscapes - the gorgeous Hakkoda Mountains, the pristine Oirase River and Lake Towada, and the pretty cherry blossoms at Hirosaki Castle in the springtime - and as a result, it is one of the top hiking destinations in Japan during the warmer seasons.

In addition to its scenic views, tourists can travel through time by visiting the Sannai-Maruyama Ruins, an archaeological site containing ruins from the prehistoric Jomon Period (14000 - 300 BC), as well as the aforementioned Hirosaki Castle, while munching on Aomori’s famous apples. Try to visit in early August if you can to witness the spectacular Nebuta Festival!
