Favorite thing: Try its apples. Apples are very popular in Japan. There's over 600 varieties! Northern Tohoku is famous as an apple-producing district. Being the most important crop, many events such as the Apple Marathon (A civic marathon where athletes run through apple orchards) & the Apple Party (featuring apple cuisine) are held to celebrate this crop.
Favorite thing: Wonder... what are being planted here? I noticed stretches of these while on the JR train enroute to Aomori.
Fondest memory: This apple tree is found in the middle of the city indicating how important this crop is to the people of this area.
Bicycles as mode of transportation.
Favorite thing: Bicycles is a popular mode of transportation in the Tohoku region. This is my 1st encounter with such a huge bicycle parking lot!
AOMORI BAY BRIDGE.
Favorite thing: AOMORI BAY BRIDGE: The 1st icon of Aomori that greets any visitor coming by train to Aomori.
