One Day Trip in Aomori - Japan (Part 2)

Hachinohe is city in Aomori Prefecture, facing Pacific Ocean. I did not visit Hirosaki Castle because it is not on the way back to the hotel. That's why I chose Hachinohe instead. The major attractions of Hachinohe are Hasshoku Center, Hachinohe Portal Museum ‘Hacchi’, Miroku-Yokocho and etc. Aomori really has a lot of attractions. Actually, My plan was visiting Hasshoku Center and the city center. Due to my time and the bad weather, I visited only Hasshoku Center, cut some program in my list  and went back to hotel. I also provide some support information for public transportation. Hope it will be useful for you.
