    Stop At: Hasshoku Center, 22-2 Kansai, Kawaragi, Hachinohe 039-1161 Aomori Prefecture

    Hasshoku Center in Aomori is a premier marketplace showcasing the foods and catches of Hachinohe Port. More than 60 shops make up the 170-meter long Big Street. There are also two large restaurants inside where you can try local dishes and freshly caught fish. If you want something even fresher, head to Shichirin-mura and grill your own seafood or other purchases over a charcoal grill.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Tatehana Wharf Asaichi Hachinohe, Shin Minato, Hachinohe 031-0811 Aomori Prefecture

    Nothing can compare to starting the morning at a Morning Market in Hachinohe. By far, the most famous and popular is the Sunday Morning Market at Tatehana Wharf. The market has a dazzling array of food to eat, produce and seafood to buy, and sights to see. As the seasons change, so do the items that line the stalls, making no two trips the same.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Tanesashi Coast, Samemachi, Hachinohe 031-0841 Aomori Prefecture

    The Tanesashi Coast is the portion of the coastline in Hachinohe that starts at the Kabushima Shrine and runs down to the neighboring town of Hashikami. It is part of the Sanriku Fukko National Park and its dynamic views, changing from soft sandy beaches to craggily dramatic cliffs to sprawling wildflower fields, make it an absolute must-see when in the area. The coast is great for driving and biking, but to truly see ALL that the coast has to offer, we recommend walking it. Start at Kabushima and follow the Michinoku Shiokaze Trail, a 1000km trail that runs the whole length of the national park, until you reach the Tanesashi Natural Lawn.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Kushihiki Hachimangu Shrine, 3 Yawata, Hachinohe 039-1105 Aomori Prefecture

    One of the most prestigious shrines in the area is the Kushihiki Hachimangu. Besides having a long name, this shrine has a long and important history in the area and was once one of the patron shrines of the Nanbu clan. The shrine is home to two national treasures that are housed in a small but worthwhile museum on the shrine grounds.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Kabushima Shrine, 56-2 Same Samemachi, Hachinohe Aomori Prefecture

    The shrine sits on top of a hill on Kabushima Island (now a peninsula thanks to a small landbridge) in the middle of the breeding grounds for the black-tailed gull. The shrine, the people of Hachinohe, and the black tailed-gulls have passed the centuries in harmony, weathering wars, tsunamis, and famines together. Unfortunately, the shrine was lost in a fire and burned down in 2015. But this did not dishearten the people of Hachinohe and it certainly did not deter the black-tailed gulls from coming back to their breeding grounds. Since the fire, the people of Hachinohe have come together to rebuild the shrine, but stop their construction every year when the birds return so that they can breed, nest, and raise their young in peace. The shrine is set to be finished in March 2020, just in time to welcome the birds back again.
