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!

Great scenic bayside stopping place in Hachinohe for admiring and, especially, listening to, seagulls: they own this place! For that reason, and regardless of the weather, you may want to carry an umbrella with you. Just sayin'...
