Hirosaki Station is surprisngly large considering the city's small population of around 180,000. This JR East station services both the Ōu Main Line and the Gonō Line. In winter Aomori is a foot deep in snow so the station is largely undercover with large walkways made to accommodate for a build up in ice.
