Tachineputa No Yakata

Reviewed By KeeWong - Penang

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.

Tsurunomai Bridge

Reviewed By お遍路さん京都市 - 京都市

私よりも年上だが半世紀以上も前からの私の永遠のマドンナである女優さんのCMで記憶も鮮明な場所です。ようやく下北半島への往路途中でここへ立ち寄ることが出来ました。何でもない、ただの長いだけの木造の橋ですが、全長は300mも、幅も3m、橋桁も30m幅、ここは日本一長い木造の三連太鼓橋、津軽富士見湖に移る姿等から鶴の舞橋と呼ばれている観光スポットです。

Shayokan - Osamu Dazai Memorial Hall

Reviewed By お遍路さん京都市 - 京都市

太宰治って大金持ちの息子さんだったのですねぇ・・・それにしてもこの建物、素晴らしいの一言、凄い建物です。外観の素晴らしさ、大きさだけでなく建物全体としてのセンスが満ち溢れている。尤も、太宰のお父さんは入り婿さんらしいが・・・。と、云うことはお母さんの家が大地主だったってことなのかな。完成は明治末期の40年とか。昭和25年あたりからは旅館「斜陽館」として観光名所となったらしい。太宰の小説は正直に云うと好きではないけど・・・この実家、生家は素晴らしい。但し、ここは有料です、500円。

Michi-no-Eki Tsuruta - Crane Village Aruja

Reviewed By Robert T - Christchurch, New Zealand

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.

Tsugaru Railways

Reviewed By Bob L - Forest Hills, New York

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?

Goshogawara Tachineputa Matsuri

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.

青森の津軽地方が大好きで年に1度のペースで訪問していますが、今回はこちら富士見湖へ初めて訪問でき、とても感動しました。鶴の舞橋を最大の目的としてきましたが、晴れると岩木山が湖面に鏡面するみたいです。残念ながら天気が非常に悪くそんな素敵な姿は見ることができませんでしたが、きっと晴れていると素敵な景色が見られるのだと思います。天気が悪くても美しいので。。

Tsugaru Shamisen Kaikan

三味線にも太宰治にも個人的には造詣も深くないし、嗜好的にも好きでは無いのだが・・・同行の友人に誘われて斜陽館のついでに入場しました。名前の通り、津軽三味線の歴史が学べる施設でした。斜陽館と三味線館の共通入場券だとほんの少しだけ割引となって900円でした。

Tancho Crane Nature Park

Reviewed By まこねこ - Setagaya, Japan

あくまでも個人的意見ですが、柵に囲われた丹頂鶴たちをみて、去年北海道の鶴居村でみた自由に美しく羽を広げて思い思いに飛んだり餌をついばんだりしている丹頂たちをみていたので、なんだか自由がなく可哀そうに感じてしまいました。じっくり見る気にもなれずそうそうに退散してしまいました。
