Default Japan Tour: Shopping in Aomori


There is a lot of good shopping to be had in Aomori city in northern Japan. Turn left out of Aomori Station and you will fall into the A-Factory (Tel: 017 752 1890) selling local Aomori Prefecture produce including Aomori apples, local souvenirs and the lovely, sweet, bottled cider (cidre) of the Aomori area.

Walking straight out of Aomori Station along Shinmachi Shopping Street (aka Amenity Street) brings you to the Auga Department Store on your right. Here in the basement is a fantastic fresh fish market, plus a number of sushi bars and stores selling just about everything including, you guessed it, Aomori apples.

Just across the road from the Auga Department Store is another fresh fish and vegetable market, the Aomori Fresh Fish & Vegetable Center where you can sample more freshly-caught seafood.

Amenity Street is the main drag with a number of good antique shops selling rare Tohoku items.
