Aomori Trip (青森県)

Our Winter family trip was on Aomori Trip. Which is the one of the coldest place in Japan. From Osaka to Aomori we took a bullet train. (Osaka to Tokyo to Aomori)

aomori

We arrived 2pm in Aomoriya Resort. Will stay 4days and 3nights here.

Aomori Prefecture is the northernmost prefecture on Honshu and faces Hokkaido across the Tsugaru Strait. It borders Akitaand Iwate in the south. Oma, at the northwestern tip of the axe-shaped Shimokita Peninsula, is the northernmost point of Honshu. The Shimokita and Tsugaru Peninsulas enclose Mutsu Bay. Between those peninsulas lies the Natsudomari Peninsula, the northern end of the Ōu Mountains. The three peninsulas are prominently visible in the prefecture’s symbol, a stylized map.

Lake Towada, a crater lake, straddles Aomori’s boundary with Akita. Oirase River flows easterly from Lake Towada. The Shirakami Mountains are located in western Aomori and contain the last of the virgin beech tree forest which is home to over 87 species of birds.

As of April 1, 2012, 12% of the total land area of the prefecture was designated as Natural Parks, namely Towada-HachimantaiNational Park; Shimokita Hantō and Tsugaru Quasi-National Parks; and Akaishi Keiryū Anmon no TakiAsamushi-NatsudomariAshino ChishōgunIwaki KōgenKuroishi OnsenkyōNakuidakeŌwani Ikarigaseki Onsenkyō, and Tanesashi Kaigan Hashikamidake Prefectural Natural Parks.[7]

The burning passion of the people who live among the green forest, below the vast sky, and within the short summers.
Aomori Prefecture is located at the northern most point of Japan’s main island, and has two regions, the Tsugaru region where the capitol city of Aomori, as well as the castle town of Hirosaki, is located, and the Southern region within which Misawa city, which contains the Aomoriya, can be found.

Each has its own different history, climate and natural features, and culture.
Find untouched nature, an abundance of foods, alluring hot springs, and our hospitality here.
The passionate emotions hidden within the people born in this region nestle close to the feelings of their visitors and warmly protect them. With these feelings in mind, we work hard with both body and mind to perfect our management of the hotel.
It is our greatest wish that you leisurely relax as you gain a sense of the true essence of Aomori.

The crew/staff here in the hotel very friendly and they speak English too. They are helpful and considerate of all the guests. We had a great time staying here relaxing, even though I’m falling to get sick, luckily they are a hot spring to prevent it. Thank goodness it was gone and continue our trip.

(above pictures) our room… so clean and neat. And, I like the free cookies and coffee which is products of Aomori.

Interesting hallway right, many lights and decoration well some the Aomori traditions which we had a chance to watch it in our dinner. It was fascinating and amazing. I will post the video on other day need to edit first. They have such meaning for all those figures.

In a first day, we did crafting. Draw some horse and scratch the chopsticks.

Aomori has an abundance of traditional handicrafts. A variety of Aomori handicrafts famous throughout Japan, such as Tsugaru lacquerware, Kokeshi dolls, kite paintings, Southern torn strip-style fabrics, Koginzashi needleworks, and more have been passed down here through the ages. Aomori Kobo is a place where you can enjoy traditional Aomori handicrafts and other activities that are very easy to participate in.

(above picture) our overwhelming dinner and a show. Amazing show!

(above picture) Our 2nd Day, which we join a trip to Oirase WaterFall, up to the mountains. Icicle and meters of snows it was very cold.

After the trip, we had time to walk around the area of the hotel. (below pictures)

So, nice to see this frozen lake but not totally ice.

3rd day, we just walk around outside the hotel and we had also hot spring there. Suddenly, snowing and kids love it. After we had dinner, we go outside and borrow some lantern and still snowing and freezing of course. btw, the lantern is so Japanese style (cute)

4th day, our last day we get up early so that we can walk again in the vicinity before we leave.

Sports day (Elementary School)

DSC_3281

My son’s sports day. It was our 4th year attending sports day of his school and also our last for this year. Well, He (my son) definitely miss his friends and classmates. That’s why when we first time told him he started crying. But, now I think he will accept it. And, that for us to stay no more transfer and he can gain more friends there. He easily deals with the kids now, because he is now fluent in Japanese. So, he can talk to them.

The sun really shines so brightly!… very hot and humid… we are sweating a lot. Anyway, we enjoyed watching our kids having so much fun. Have time to watch the video I complied. See below.

Shirahama Energy Land

DSC_1634

This is our first time to go here. It just in front of the Shirahama Beach. At first, looks like it was just boring place, but when you get inside all the rooms it’s getting amazed.

Map&Fee Energy Land

Map Gallery

It just a small area but every corner is brilliant ideas.

Trick room

This is the Trick Art House, kids got lots of fun. Then, after we went to the Mystery Zone we got dizzy because of the structure of the house in sideways. Below I posted video in my youtube channel.

Yeah, sorry for the late post. We have been busy for the past days, now is the time.

IMG_9160

This is our first time to go here. Suprisingly huge and more rides. It’s a Combo! in a one Place:  Zoo, Marine and Park, that’s great right.

Tickets

Not that bad for the fees right… as I told you is a COMBO! What we are looking forward was the Pandas. They are so cute and adorable.

IMG_9165

But, we are a bit late to have a ticket to up close encounter of the dolphin and sea lion feeding them, Sold out ticket oh that was a separate fee for that special encounter. So, we just look around what else we can see we try the Safari by train because is free. But, seems it will be fun by walking, so we also tried.Map

It was a really huge place one day is not enought, we didn’t even ride the park rides like roller coaster, ferries wheel, etc. But, for us animals are enough for now, learning stage for my little princess to know the animals and see in person than in the tv or books.

We tried the free train for the Safari, but much more fun in walking at least you can stop and take a selfies with them hehehe…

safari

We didn’t see any of the shows, but only the dolphin show.

Our tree is Up!

Yeap, the spirit of Christ-mas and holiday is in our house now. When I was a little or young I’m so excited with Christmas because of presents/gifts and abundant foods in every house we go besides of those things we have to thank the above for nearly end year for us celebrate the birth of our saviour and most of the best is family bonding. From my great grandparents, uncles, aunties, cousins, friends and neighbors as well. We always talk about everything but usually we talked our younger years. Graders to College days non-stop chating and laughing. 

Now, I have my own family still I’m excited of Christ-mas… Because, whenever we put up our christmas tree it just bringing back my younger years and also seeing my kids very happy hanging the decor in the tree I feel happy and glad i have this two kids even though they quite stubborn sometimes but still I’m thanking the almighty that He trusted me to have my own family. And, of course longer family bonding and looking forward for a ahead of another year to us. 

Before I end my post… I hope I’m the first to greet you A Merry and Bright Christmas to all 🎄
