Whatever you're after, this place has it all - from the freshest powder snow powder to relaxing natural hot springs! If you really want to appreciate Aomori's winter, you must try "black diamond" blue fin tuna from the Tsugaru Channel!

Seeing the entire forest on the mountain's slopes covered in orange, red, and yellow is staggeringly beautiful. Covering a good portion of Mount Hakkoda's expanse, a stunning gondola ride immerses you into the seasonal beauty.
