A World-Class Modern Art Museum in the Heart of Scenic Aomori
Creative expression and the cityscape connect at the Towada Art Center
A downtown cultural hotbed, the Towada Art Center lets you immerse yourself in a dynamic gallery of three-dimensional works of art and architecture – both inside and outdoors – in an environment painstakingly curated to complement its urban surroundings.
Alongside art by Yoko Ono, Yayoi Kusama and Ron Mueck, don’t miss the 5.5 m high Flower Horse outdoor monument, by artist/designer Choi Jeong Hwa, which boldly and positively symbolizes the aesthetic mission of the museum and the city.
Outside of town you’ll find Lake Towada, offering stunning vistas and hiking courses for the outdoor enthusiast. Stay overnight at a local ryokan or hotel, and sample specialties like freshwater fish, Kuraishi beef, and sembei rice cracker soup, an Aomori soul food.
It takes 1 hour from Hachinohe Station to Towada Art Center and 2 hours to Lake Towada by bus. Hachinohe Station is about 4 hours from Tokyo by bullet train.
