Summer Guide

Summer in Japan is hot and humid, but Aomori prefecture is relatively cool because the humidity is lower than in Tokyo and Osaka. It is recommended to feel the cool breeze in the mountains such as Mt. Hakkoda, Lake Towada, and Oirase Gorge, and to feel the refreshing sea in Hotokegaura and Tanesashi Coast. At night, summer festivals such as the Nebuta Festival and the fireworks display are held, and you can experience the traditions and culture of the area.
