On the 16th (Mon), admire the striking features of Sannai-Maruyama Site, admire the masterpieces at Aomori Museum of Art, and then soak in some Japanese tradition at some of the top local onsens. Keep things going the next day: examine the collection at Seikan Ferry Memorial Ship Hakkodamaru, then get answers to all your questions at Aomori Prefecture Tourist Centerl ASPAM, then admire the striking features of Nebuta Museum Wa Rasse, and finally explore the activities along Oirase River.

Tucked away among the foothills of the Hakkoda mountain range, Towada tourism revolves around its eponymous lake and the surrounding national park.
Start off your visit on the 18th (Wed): explore the world behind art at Towada Art Center, explore the activities along Oirase Mountain Stream, and then stroll the grounds of Tomb of Omachi Keigetsu.

Plan my Towada trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
