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.

The view from the observation deck was stunning and the film was well worth it. Would have loved to watch all four seasons but we didn't have time sadly. The ramen on the 1st floor was also really good and very reasonable!

Great view at the observation deck. You can shop for souvenirs and there is a lot of apple theme products since Aomori is the prefacture that produces the most apple in Japan.

Good place to get some of the local foods. Was looking for some information about the area in English however an English speaking attendant was only availiable on certain days and times. There was still some good information availiable in the form of pamphlets and maps. When you're there, you must try the local apple pastry from the stall just to the right of the entry....It's superb, suoer tasty!

The Centre offers a lot of information about the area. Aomori is known for its delicious Apples 🍎 so when you’re there, go and try the Apple located on the ground (1st) floor.
