[Rural Japan] Honshu Northernmost Elegy, Aomori city and Aomori prefecture.


Location











































spring

















summer




















Autumn



























Long, cold winter












































Capital city, Aomori.
As of 2003, the city has an estimated population of 296,139 and a density of 427.71 persons per km². The total area is 692.39 km².



Aomori prefecture
Aomori Prefecture is the northernmost prefecture on Honshu and faces Hokkaido across the Tsugaru Strait. It borders Akita and Iwate in the south.

Aomori is especially famous for its apple orchards.

Lake Towada, a beautiful caldera, lies on the boundary between Akita and Aomori Prefectures. The Oirase river drains Lake Towada; in the summer it is refreshing and in the autumn the leaves are breathtaking.

Osorezan, the Mountain of Dread, is in Mutsu on the Shimokita Peninsula.

The Hakkoda Mountains in Aomori provide excellent hiking in the warmer seasons. However, the winter proved disastrous to over 200 soldiers who died during a military maneuver in the area in deep snow.

(um, its nothing to do with skyscraper, but please dont mind! )

Those are very nice pictures indeed. Although I've been to Japan numerous times, I wish I had the opportunity to see more of Japan's natural landscapes like the ones you've taken.

I remember that building.The train stopped in Amori for 1 hour which gave us a bit of time to walk around and check out a few of the sites.The one thing I remember was that building and the bridge.
