Aomori Station


Aomori Station is the main point of access for Aomori city in Tohoku, the far north of Japan. Aomori Station is a short train ride from Shin-Aomori Station, the new station serving the shinkansen from Tokyo and from March 2016 the Hokkaido Shinkansen to Hakodate.

Aomori Station is on the Ou Main Line for Shin-Aomori Station, Hirosaki Station, Akita Station, Yamagata, and Niigata as well as the Aoimori Railway Line for Hachinohe and Morioka.

The Tsugaru-Kaikyo Line for Hakodate and Sapporo was replaced by the Hokkaido Shinkansen and now carries freight.

Aomori Station is also a major bus terminus for local buses and long distance highway buses. The helpful Aomori Tourist Information Center is just outside the main exit. Many of Aomori's hotels are also within easy reach of the station including the Toyoko Inn, the Hotel Route Inn Aomori Ekimae and the Iroha Ryokan.
