Kaneiri Museum Shop
The theme of the Kaneiri Museum Shop is “Aomori is cool and fun”. Products sold here include Hachinohe’s most famous traditional craft, the yawata-uma carved wooden horses, as well as items made with Nanbu sakiori-style weaving, full of functional beauty and the wisdom of our ancestors, and the Hachinohe-yaki pottery of Edo-era commoners. The shop is also a base for the planning and development, sales and sharing of original goods which use the power of design to draw out their local charms. Many other creative items are available here too, such as traditional Tsugaru-nuri lacquered crafts, and books and magazines about design and art.

If you want to take home some of Hachinohe’s famous seafood, the “Hasshoku Center” is the place to go. Even just looking at the seafood is fun, and convenient nationwide delivery is available. The best part of a visit to Hachinohe is bringing the seafood you just bought in the Center to “Shichirin-mura”, where you can grill it over charcoal and eat it right away. This huge market has everything, including sweets from Hachinohe and Aomori prefecture as well as plenty of local sakes from around Tohoku. It is conveniently accessible by bus from Tohoku Shinkansen Hachinohe Station (100 JPY) or the city center (200 JPY or less)/p>
