Located on the waterfront just a minute from Aomori station, A-Factory is a great place to sample locally produced food and drinks. It houses a produce market with hundreds of different food and drink products for sale, many of them made from the apples for which the prefecture is famous. There's also an apple cider factory, a cake shop, and a food court where you can buy freshly prepared meals to eat in, take out or, in summer, enjoy on the outdoor beer terrace.

I came to Japan from Manchester, England in 2003, and have travelled a lot since then, around Japan and in Asia. When I'm not working, I write satire and perform stand-up comedy in and around Tokyo. Check YouTube for a taste.
