To the North
The Tohoku line, which was first implemented in 2002, is going to be extended to more northern in Honshu Island, the main island of the Japanese archipelago. Beginning on December 4, 2010, the line opens to Shin-Aomori, a new train hub in Aomori prefecture, the home of Fuji Apple. The new shinkansen takes travelers to the beautiful northern country from Tokyo just in 3 hours and 20 minutes. Aomori is also a place for the largest summer festival in Japan: Nebuta Festival celebrating short summer, draws 3 million people between August 2 and 7 every year.
