    Aomori

    This is similar to "ikameshi" cuisine native to nearby Hakodate across the strait in Hokkaido. "Ikameshi" is boiled squid stuffed with rice boiled in squid broth. On the other side is broth-flavoured rice topped with steamed scallops sprinked with "ikura" salmon eggs, with pickles on the side.

    Generally, it is available for purchase only in this area, primarily at Aomori Station.

Well know hot spa areas often have their own Kokeshi. Kokeshi dolls have become popular for their gentle features embodying an ideal of femininity.
