Photo Albums on Aomori
and Hokkaido cities
Tohoku region -
The northernmost larger city of Honshu ( Main Island ) and an
important passageway to even further north, Hokkaido. It serves
as a regional center for the area, and as a midway stop for travelers
as well, with a large number of hotels and a long shopping street
running from the station into the heart of the entertainment district.
Its most famous view is the Aomori Bay Bridge.
Sapporo, Noboribetsu, Otaru
Only half an hour away from Sapporo, an ideal place to go out hunting
for ( interesting ) food. Its main attraction apart of a large number
of kani ( crab ) and fresh sushi restaurants is the seaside where
a colonization-era scene is photographed by thousands of tourists
each day. The canal and its surrounding buildings bring up a feeling
of the 19th century... Germany.
The largest city and the prefectural capital of Hokkaido, it's a
place that the word spacious can describe best. Its geography is
unique to other cities as it was planned well ahead during its foundation
in the 19th century. Almost 2 million people come and go on the
gridlined streets to the gigantic shopping, dining and business
center around the train station in the north, to the entertainment
districts including Susukino on the south, and Odori koen in the
middle. Its most famous icons include the TV Tower, the Odori park
itself, the colonization-era buildings of Akarenga and the Tokei-dai
( clock-tower ), the Sapporo Beer-en, Japan's first beer brewery,
and the view from Moiwa yama.
Japan is world famous for its bathing culture and spas, and within
Japan the most famous attraction is definitely Noboribetsu Onsen.
Located deep within a volcanic mountain range is the tourist center
with nothing but hotels, spas, restaurants and shops catering to
the people arriving from all over the country. The water is supplied
from the nearby natural hot springs, visiting its origin is an attraction
itself. Only about ten minutes away from the center you are already
deep within Jigokudani ( Hell valley ), and not much further you
can see the active volcano Hiyoriyama and its lakes, Oyunuma and
Okunoyu, all of them offering views on nature you'll never forget.
