Aomori City

Aomori City (population approx. 300,000) is situated roughly in the centre of Aomori, the northernmost prefecture on Japan's main island of Honshu. Since the 17th century, Aomori has been the major conduit for trade, transportation and cultural links between the islands of Honshu and Hokkaido. Nestled between the sheltered waters of Mutsu Bay to the north and the towering Hakkoda mountains to the south, the city offers spectacular scenery in every season of the year. The Tohoku Shinkansen, which since 2010 has taken passengers between Tokyo and Aomori in roughly three hours, is to be extended to Hokkaido in March 2016. There are also direct flights to Aomori from Incheon, South Korea.

Aomori's Incentive Tours Support Programme targets groups of more than 100 visitors per day.

Support overview:
  • Welcome signs/boards at rail stations and airport
  • Posters welcoming guests and promoting the event displayed at convention facilities, hotels, stores, restaurants, etc.
  • Transceivers, loudhailers, name holders, etc., loaned free of charge
