Tatehana Wharf Morning Market

The Tatehana Wharf Morning Market is a huge event that takes place every Sunday early in the morning on the extensive, usually empty wharf.
It is one of the largest morning markets not only in Aomori Prefecture and the Tohoku region but also in Japan, boasting tens of thousands of visitors every week.
Especially during consecutive holidays and the Obon holidays, its pathways are so crowded with tourists and vacationers returning home that it can even seem impossible to walk through.
It is also a great place to enjoy casual conversation with locals — vendors and regular customers alike.
The market offers everything from Hachinohe's famous fresh and dried seafood, such as squid and mackerel, to freshly picked vegetables and fruits, handmade prepared foods, and various other foods.
It is one of the most popular tourist attractions, drawing more than 10,000 visitors weekly.
