The food was very good but the portions were Japanese size, that is to say they were tiny! We ordered the Lazagna, mixed grilled veggies, Pizza, spicy penne and some deserts...all were very small portions but very tasty, well the Lazagna was just OK really. Italian restaurants are supposed to be large portions and you just don't get that here in Japan...and I've been to many Italian places here. But the food is good, just don't expect real "Italian Family SIze" meals and expect high prices.
Actually, I think we were still hungry when we left
Favorite Dish: I would say the Dessert was very good..I had the Tirrimisu adn it was small but tasty, Robbie had a Pear pie or something and Melanie had a Chocolate mouse cake that was REALLY tiny and not at all worth it.

Coffee of Oirase. Thought it's refreshing to have a drink named after a place. Taste ok but nothing great. Just something to capture the attention of tourists, I guess. Same price as all the other canned coffee.

No trip to Aomori prefecture would complete without a visit Osore-zan, the terrible mountain. So called because of its dismal surroundings, this is truly a place that is an eerie spectacle. The mountain is a dormant volcano so the landscape is charred and dead. The foul smell of sulfur hangs in the air, adding to visual assault of the lifeless landscape. On top of that it’s a bit of a haul from Aomori city with almost no real public transportation to get there. If you are willing to brave all that you will find an interesting outing, with blind mediators who will converse with the dead, for a price, multi colored pool (ranging from blood red to yellow to green), bubbling and steaming ground and stacks of rocks made by the souls of dead children. Truly a unique experience.
In order to go on the mountain you have to pay 500 yen to enter Osorezan-Bodaiji (may to Oct 6am to 6pm) the shrine on Osore-zan.
Osore-zan’s summer festival is held on July 20-24.
