I arrived here by train. I tried my luck again with couchsurfing but unfortunately had a terrible exeprience that I will not talk about too much, and due to unavailable hostels/expensive hotels I had to change my plans for the following day.
Weather was pretty bad here as well when I arrived so most if not all of my plans for Aomori were ruined, but if you get here definitely check out:
- Lake Towada
- Oirase stream (a hefty bus ride away but supposedly very pretty)
I chose Sendai as my last stop before going back to Tokyo, got there by a Shinkansen.
