Hachinohe Port(area:TOHOKU/AOMORI)

Summer Winter

The port of Hachinohe is located on the Pacific side in the southeast of Aomori Prefecture and has been promoted for development by taking advantage of the opportunity in 1964 when Hachinohe was designated a new industrial city. A paper manufacturing company and basic materials company in the non-ferrous metal industry were established in the coastal area, which accelerated port development, including large docks, ferry wharf, and the container terminal. There are many tourist spots around the port to enjoy Hachinohe’s unique nature and food; such as Tanesashi Beach in Sanriku Fukko National Park with its variety of geographic shapes and vegetation; Hasshoku Center, a suburban food facility where 3 million people visit every year; and Tatehan Wharf Asaichi, one of the largest morning markets in Japan. Also, Hachinohe offers easy access to Oirase Stream in Towada Lake, known for the rich nature such as beautiful maple leaves, and Kuji City in Iwate Prefecture, where the story of Amachan, the morning NHK TV drama series, took place.
