Kabushima (it isn't actually an island as it is connected to the land is home to Hachinohe's famous black tailed sea gulls AKA umi neko. There is a shrine at the top with a small souvenir shop. The number of seagulls is an incredible sight and endearingly Japanese. Just remember to take an umbrella with you!
