Aomori Tourist Information Center, ASPAM

青森県観光物産館アスパム

A bayside landmark packed with Aomori souvenirs

This waterfront facility has a distinctive triangular building modeled after the “A” in “Aomori” and is beautifully lit up at night.


Lured in by the mouthwatering aroma of freshly baked apple pie, you will find the first floor packed with delicious Aomori specialties ranging from local sake to sweets. Fresh apples are also sold in abundance when in season.


The second floor is the “Interactive Zone.” The 360-degree panoramic movie theater shows immersive 3D digital video of the Nebuta Festival. You can also watch a demonstration of Kogin-zashi embroidery, a traditional craft that showcases the fine skill and fortitude developed by women living in this harsh northern region.


There is an observatory on the thirteenth floor where you can enjoy a 360-degree view from a height of 51 meters of surroundings such as downtown Aomori, the port, and the Hakkoda Mountains. On clear days, you may even be able to see as far as Hokkaido.


◆ The name “ASPAM” is an abbreviation for “Aomori” “Sightseeing” “Products” “Mansion.”
