Aomori faces four different oceans. This is a dynamic course where you go around Tsugaru Channel, Sea of Japan , and Mutsu Bay. You will see Shimokita Peninsula and Tsugaru Channel with Hokkaido in the distance. Take a break at Tappizaki after that. If you survive the very steep hill to Chohkandai, the winding downhill with the spectacular view is waiting. You can see the Sea of Japan after passing Lake Jusanko. On "Yamanami Line" after passing the lake, let's feel the fresh green wind and pedal on the road. You will come out at the seacoast, the sea shining in cobalt blue. It is Mutsu Bay. Pedaling through elegant Matsumae Street and Takanosaki, the goal is near.

Refreshing cycling, looking at three different oceans each with unique appeal.
Tappizaki, the northernmost part of Tsugaru Peninsula. The shore, which is eroded by winds and heavy seas, marks the 100m cliff.
"Chohkandai" is at the highest point of National Route 339, commonly called "Ryuhaku Line."
21m high waterfall, "Nanatsutaki," is named for the seven waterfalls flowing over huge boulders.
Local dish, "Sashimi of Nakadomari Rockfish and Boiled Meal!" One whole high-quality rockfish is sumptuously used.
Along Mutsu Bay, Tairadate Lighthouse is on Matsumae Street. Take a small break and see the lighthouse appearing beautiful against the blue ocean and the sky.
