Trip with a Rent a Car in Hachinohe city: Try all kinds of local rice wine
What we'll do
One of the well-known places in Aomori prefecture is Hachinohe city.
On this tour, we'll first head to Tanesashi Kaigan Coast, a wide-open space with a natural lawn that spreads all the way to the beach, where you'll be able to savor the feeling of openness.
After that, we'll make a stop at the Hachinohe Sake Brewery where you can learn firsthand how Japanese rice wine is made. The driver won't be able to try any of the sake, of course, so don't forget to buy yourself a souvenir.
Lastly, we'll visit the Misawa Aviation Science Museum for an observation. If you like, we can also take part in one of the limited monthly events.
We can meet here, at the TOYOTA Rent a Car Shin-Aomori Station West Exit Shop.

1Tanesashi Kaigan Coast
The Tanesashi Kaigan Coast is an area of picturesque scenery located in the northern part of the Sanriku Fukko National Park. The Sanriku Fukko National Park was established in May of 2013 with the goal of contributing to the reconstruction of the aftermath of the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami. Stretching out ten kilometers from Kabushima Island of Same-machi, Hachinohe City, all the way to the southeastern Ookuki area of Hachinohe City, Tanesashi Kaigan Coast is a designated coastal area split into four distinct areas: Kabushima, Ashigezaki/Oosuka, Shibafuchi, and Ookuki.
2Hachinohe Sake Brewery
Hachinohe Sake Brewery is notable for its elegant Taisho-era building, which combines a brick building and a Japanese house. The building is designated by Hachinohe as an Important Scenic Building and also as a National Tangible Cultural Property. All the rice used to make Hachinohe Shuzo Sake Brewery’s local sake is grown in Aomori Prefecture. Other raw materials used primarily originate from Aomori, for example, and the famed water of the Kanisawa District.
