The Tsugaru Strait, Mutsu Bay, and the Pacific Ocean intersect with one other, creating a dynamic and rich ecosystem teeming with life. Seasons pass with the landscape, giving rise to vibrant colors and fragrances. At the Geo-dining events held throughout the area, internationally renowned chefs familiar with local ingredients create perfect and exciting dishes.
