Never had we seen such kind of Giant Lantern Display, it was really a different kind of astonished feeling. The design of the whole "museum" is wonderful as we could walk all the way from 4th floor down to ground floor without taking any stairs. Remember to check for the short movie clip show schedule. You can watch it halfway along the way down.

Aruja road station is the local equivalent of a farmers' market. The fruit. Vegetables and other produce are mainly grown in the district, with products from outside the area clearly labeled as such. The produce is seasonal and of good quality. There are photos of the growers attached to baskets of the produce they are selling. It seems that most are women and they are supplementing their families' income. I was surprised to find gooseberries, raspberries and black-currants on sale this week. The prices are very reasonable and the goods are always fresh. It is a very popular shopping place for the locals, so it pays to get there around 10am for the most choice. The souvenir section is stocked with a range of goods suitable for gift-giving. During the apple and grape seasons, the staff will arrange to send gift boxes to other areas in Japan. You can't go wrong sending fuji apples to your friends in Japan!
Aruja is well worth a look if you are visiting theTsugaru region.

Three times a day this sector three railway attaches two old cars to the regular scheduled railcar. The cars contain a pot bellied stove. You can buy a slice of fresh squid which they will cook on the stove for you. Unfortunately, few people were in the railcar. Can the railway survive only on the tourist train?

The Taichineputa no Yakata festival, held in Goshogawara every August, features vast 'taichineputa': glowing parade floats nearly 80 feet tall and weighing in at about 38,000 pounds! People help to shoulder the floats throughout the city, while dancers and musicians energize onlookers with chants and riffs. It's a high-energy and visually stunning parade, with about fifteen floats in total-- three of which are larger than life.
I came to see the Aomori Neputa and also visited the Hirosaki parade but this one was AMAZING! The floats are about 4 stories high and tower above the buildings. The town is relatively small and the whole parade is over within 2 hr.
Try to sit just past the Float Museum building (further away from the train station) because the large floats come out of there so if you are upstream from it, you need to wait for it to come back around.
I couldn't find a hotel available but they do have a train after 21:00 so you can stay in the neighbouring area. However the town is cute and there is still some activity and street life going on after the parade so if you can find a hotel room it's probably worth a night's stay. Definitely a must see if you are in the area.
