WELCOME TO HACHINOHE CITY
Hachinohe is located in the southeastern part of Aomori prefecture, facing the Pacific Ocean. For centuries, the city has prospered as the center of the Nanbu region, which includes the northern part of Iwate prefecture. Hachinohe continues to grow as one of Japan’s main sources of freshly-caught seafood as well as one of Tohoku’s main centers of industry, while the beautiful natural scenery of the Tanesashi Coast is not far from the city center. A major attraction of Hachinohe is this combination of fisheries, industry and nature within a small area.
