About this sight

Located less than a minute from Aomori Station, ASPAM was established in 1986 and has since become a landmark of the city. The shape of the 76-meter tall building resembles the letter "A", symbolizing the first letter of Aomori City as well as Aomori Prefecture. It is a multi-use structure containing souvenir and craft shops offering Aomori's local food and signature products, such as apples, sake, and kokeshi dolls​. The building also features a restaurant floor, an observatory on the 13th floor, a panorama film room, as well as a tourist information office.
