What to Expect
Day 1 - Aomori City, Aomori Prefecture - Cultural & Archaeological Tour (Lunch & Dinner included)

The tour will start at Shin-Aomori Station at 9:30am. First we head to Wa Rasse Nebuta Museum by private coach - a hands-on experience where you can learn all about the history, culture and technicalities of creating the giant paper floats used during the annual Aomori Nebuta Festival. There will also be the opportunity to watch and take part in a Haneto dance as well as try your hand at papering using the same method used for the floats. Then we will move to Sannai Maruyama Historical Site, the largest discovered Jomon site in Japan. We will walk through recreations of the settlement, which was first inhabited 4,500 to 5,000 years ago. We will also view the numerous excavated items at the site’s museum. Continuing to Komakino Jomon Ruins, we can see a circular stone ceremonial site constructed in the late Jomon period. After first stopping at the site’s museum, we continue on to the actual site by foot. Not only can we glimpse back into the ancient past of Japan, but we also can see magnificent views over Aomori City from the site. From there, the group will move to an authentic Japanese pub (izakaya) to enjoy some of the regional cuisine of Aomori and watch a shamisen performance.

Day 2: Kuroishi, Aomori Prefecture - Nature Hike & Cultural Tour (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner included)

First, we will head to The Death March of the Hakkoda Mountains Memorial Museum before going to Nakano Momiji Mountain, home to a shrine which boasts 600 year old great cedar trees. Then we will explore Komise Street, popular for its preservation of buildings from the Edo period of Japan, to experience a powerful performance of Tsugaru-jamisen and drink local sake.

Day 3: Oirase, Aomori Prefecture - Waterfall Hike & Hot Spring Tour (Breakfast & Lunch included)

On the final day we will slowly make our way along the path to Oirase stream, with ample opportunity to take in the vibrant nature. With its many waterfalls, Oirase Stream is a natural gem of Japan and a truly memorable experience. Our destination is Choshi Otaki Waterfall. This majestic waterfall is over 7 meters high and 20 meters wide. Afterwards, we will have lunch in Nenokuchi (Lake Towada). We will then go to Asamushi Hot Spring where you can enjoy grilled fresh scallops before taking a dip in the natural hot spring water. The tour will end back at Shin-Aomori Station at around 8pm.
