Hachinohe is the central city of the southern region in eastern Aomori Prefecture. It is also famous as one of the leading port towns in the Tohoku region (Aomori, Miyagi, Iwate, Akita, and Fukushima prefectures).
Hachinohe is also a trendy tourist destination due to its beautiful coastline, spectacular views of the sea, and the wide variety of fresh seafood available.
In addition, the “Hachinohe Sanshataisai Festival” held in the summer is worth a visit for its gorgeous and powerful floats. The area is also famous for its breeding ground for black-tailed gulls and the tomb of Christ. Some unusual spots make it a must-visit attraction.
