The airport puts you in close proximity to all that Aomori City has to offer

Aomori Prefecture sits at the very top of Honshu, Japan's largest island. The prefecture is accessible from Tokyo via the Hayabusa Shinaksen, with the journey taking around three hours – but if you want to get there faster, air access is also available. Aomori Airport has routes to a number of Japanese cities including Tokyo, Osaka, Kobe, Nagoya, and Sapporo. There are also services to Seoul's Incheon Airport, Taiwan's Taoyuan Airport, and China's Tianjin Airport.

There are various eating and shopping options available at the airport, which are spread out over the first and second floors. Cafe 709 serves up a range of quick dishes like curry rice and ramen, and for those looking for their caffeine fix there's a branch of the Tully's Coffee chain too. If you're after a regional specialty, check out Kawara Ramen – they serve the local favorite of miso curry milk ramen, which comes topped with butter. The retail stores include the likes of Blue Sky and Aspam, where you'll find a range of local handicrafts, souvenirs, and food and beverage items.

For those who wish to continue their travels in Aomori by car, there are several different rental services available at the airport, including Toyota, Nissan, Orix, Times, and Nippon Rent a Car – you'll find the car rental area located next to the passenger terminal building. There is an information desk situated just outside the arrivals hall on the first floor if you need assistance with directions, sightseeing options, or help with transport.

Aomori Airport is located approximately 10 kilometers (around 15 minutes driving time) from Namioka Station, served by the Ou Main Line. Bus services are available from Namioka Station and Aomori Station to the airport and vice versa.

For those who are self-driving to the airport, there are around 450 parking spaces available.
