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.

5 stars looking striking and being and iconic part of the Aomori downtown and port area. They have a nice big open area to chill in. Along with gift shops, kids play area and some local exhibits and food. So interesting looking u just feel compelled to look inside. It is the main local TOURISM information center. So lots of local info to share and see here.

Observation floor on 13th floor. Lots of souvenir shops on ground floor. Very quiet weekday. Boardwalk in front is almost deserted which is a welcome change to Tokyo.

A wealth of information about Aomori and surrounding regions. Very friendly service. I got maps and info on renting a bicycle, sights to see, day trip to Hirosaki and the Hakkoda Mountains. Well worth a visit

Worth it, a must when visiting Aomori!
2nd floor there is a tourist information.
I went through 2 other information centers on my way to Aomori (shin-aomori and aomori station) and only here i finally understood how i can manage my stay and what to do :)
