Aomori Prefecture Tourist Center ASPAM4.0
This is a 76m-tall tourist information building in a shape of pyramid or "A", representing the first letter of Aomori. It has a multitude of souvenir shops and an observation platform at the top offers splendid views of the bay and the city. Throughout July, you can overlook the making of Nebuta floats in the nearby park. Musical performances using the Aomori's famed instrument 'Tsugaru Shamisen' are frequently held here.

A interesting building situated by the waterfront in aomori. It looks better at night when it's lit up.
As I understand it's a conference centre with some shops and restaurants along with a tourist information site on the first floor.
Higher up there's a couple of restaurant's that must be a bit romantic at night .
There's a small charge to go to the very top at the observation deck though aomori hasn't the best view around like Tokyo.
Best thing to do is buy some local delicacies on the ground floor bring it up to the first floor to the tourist information bit where they have ample seating and tables with a view across the bay.
Have a nice lunch will browsing where to go next with all the brochures you're going to grab.
Good spot to pass a couple of hours and relax.

Cool triangular shaped building on the Aomori waterfront with an observation deck on the 13th floor that costs ¥400 to enter. The building contains loads of shops and restaurants and has a lot of tourist information available for free. There are often musicians playing here that you can sit and enjoy or market stalls at which you can buy hand made goods.

Look like a souvenir shop designed for tour tourists. A bit far away from train station. The Apple tart selling in the bakery shop smell delicious and taste excellent.

At Aspam there's a tourist information center which is very informative. There's some souvenir shops and the apple pie sold at the bakery is to die for.

The weird shaped building makes it very Instagram worthy, but there really isn't much going on in there during the winter,
