Tohoku (Japan Sea side)

From nigata go north on Route 7 and head toward Aomori (Ferry Terminal). Although there were not much good structures, I thought that it was a peaceful and good place.

●Aomori Prefecture (Crossing to Hokkaido = ferry only)

I also did so but it was not surprisingly known how to go to Hokkaido. I thought that I could cross the Seikan tunnel by bike. The Seikan tunnel is exclusively for trains, and there are only ferries to cross Hokkaido by car / bike.

It is close to the distance that Aomori ~ Hakodate has two routes in Hakodate
1: Aomori ~ Hakodate (Tsugaru Strait Ferry) 2: Oma - Hakodate (Tsugaru Strait Ferry)
