JR extended the railway line of Tohoku Shinkansen from Hachinohe up to Shin-Aomori.
On December 4th,
Tohoku Shinkansen will start to run from Tokyo station to Shin-Aomori station.
At this moment,
if you want to go to Aomori from Tokyo,
you go to Hachinoe by Shinkansen "HAYATE", and transfer to the express train for Aomori.
It takes about 4 hours.
The distance between Tokyo and Shin-Aomori is 713.7 km.
From December 4th,
Shinkansen "HAYATE" will link Tokyo with Shin-Aomori at full speed in 3 hours and 20 minutes.
You will save your time a lot.
You have enough time to enjoy one-day trip in Aomori.
you have more alternatives for traveling by making the transportation in Aomori more convenient.
When you get to Aomori,
the landscape which gets totally different in each season comes out in front of you.
< Spring >
Including the oldest cherry tree "SOMEIYOSHINO"in Japan,
you can enjoy about 2,600 cherry blooming in Hirosaki castel.
< Summer >
You can enjoy Aomori Nebuta Festival, where the entire city throbs.
< Autumn >
the sound in the clear stream merges in the clear air.
You can enjoy the beautiful autumn leaves there.
< Winter >
Speaking of Mt. Hakkoda in winter,
the landscape like India-ink painting spread out in front of your eyes.
It's a good idea to visit the northern part of Japan !!
