Aomori Port was conveniently located near JR Station with many tourist spots in the neighbourhood. We have strolled along the walkway next to the waterfront, paid visits to the museum and A Factory before reaching the train station for our onward journey to Hirosaki Park by train. The walk was peaceful and relaxing and took about half an hour under... More

We docked at the Port of Aomori on the cruise ship Crystal Serenity. We had a nice welcome when we docked. There are several major attractions such as the Nebuta Festival Float Museum and the Seikan Ferry Memorial Ship Hakkodamaru within easy walking distance. You walk right under the bridge to get to there.

We returned from our Hirosaki park visit by JR line just after lunch and dropped into the Aomori tourist bureau again. The supervisor who speaks English was not able to advise of anything to do. It was Monday and museums and Art galleries were on our list for Tuesday . It is the second week of May. So we filled... More

The site description is a bit vague - the port itself is just a typical place and nothing extraordinary jumps out. But depending on how you define a port, the port area is where many of the top things to do are so one way or another, you'll definitely end up at the port.

There is a nice boardwalk and pedestrain bridge next to a big bridge at this port which blends in with the surronding very well. I just love the design and enjoyed strolling around here very much!

We visited Aomori from the cruise ship a shuttle ride into town took us to the huge triangular building, which is a landmark and houses the tourist information centre. Aomori is noted for its apple harvest and the products made from them. At the Auga shopping mall on the ground floor we sampled apple jam, preserved and dried apples etc.... More

I went to the port which is about 2km away from the train station to catch the evening ferry. It's a working port area with not much to recommend it. If people are talking about the touristy bay area - it has been covered under different sections of Trip Advisor eg. Ferry Ship Memorial. The bay area is easily walkable... More

We two walked lazily on the slippery path along the water front enjoying the magnificent view. Visited Aspen building, climbed up the onto the highway to enjoy the view of the city as well as of the sea, appreciated the A-building, and quietly mingled into the crowd of the city towards the end. Perfect!

I recommend you take the train here. The fast train or the local train from Misawa come here. The city is famous for apples and there are department stores, you can also walk along the bay. Its great.
