The Michinoku Coastal Trail is a 1,025-kilometer-long trekking route that runs along the Pacific Coast of northeastern Japan, from the city of Hachinohe, in Aomori Prefecture, to the city of Soma in Fukushima Prefecture. Along the way, you will witness dynamic seascapes, rugged cliffs, expansive rias coastline, and seasonal beauty. The trail is well-maintained, with campgrounds, rest stops, and accommodation options nearby. It can be broken up into shorter, more manageable sections for day hiking, providing the chance to engage with local culture, and see the connection between the natural landscape and the people who inhabit it. First-time visitors should try the Hachinohe section, which winds along the beautiful seaside of the Tanesashi Coast.
