5 Famous Foods You’ll Find In Aomori

Aomori Prefecture is one of the chilliest and snowiest places on the planet. The immense cold and the early sunset has the power to make winters difficult. However, the locals of this prefecture embraced the harsh conditions and ingeniously created dishes that make even the darkest of days all the much better, plus a few other dishes to be enjoyed year round. This list does not include the mass amounts of fresh seafood you can get in Aomori, but that can be found all over the prefecture, especially along the coastlines.

From Miso Curry Milk Ramen to Barayaki, and from Aomori Apples to Senbei-Jiru and Baniku we take a look at some of the dishes that made Aomori a popular destination for foodies. Not sure about raw horse meat? No worries, you have plenty of other tasty options.

I’ve long believed that good food, good eating, is all about risk. Whether we’re talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime ‘associates,’ food, for me, has always been an adventure.
