Incredible scenery both of the sea and the mountains.
Let’s go to the northernmost island of Honshu–Shimokita Peninsula!

Shimokita Peninsula faces the Pacific Ocean, Tsugaru strait, and Mutsu Bay.
As such, it offers a wide variety of stunning sceneries, as well as exquisite seafoods such as Oma’s fresh-caught tuna and Kazamaura’s squid!

Highlights

Oma Tuna

Oma Tuna
Top quality tuna you should try at least once in your lifetime!

Oma’ s tuna is considered to be the best in all of Japan. The fresh tuna caught by a fisherman using a fishing needle is especially fancy. Although most of the tuna gets sent to Tsukiji market in Tokyo, if you’ re there at just the right time, you can enjoy this exquisite fish at some of the restaurants!
