Good design, food, art and scenery in one train

The Tohoku Emotion is a special Japan train that runs through the very north of the main Honshu island.

There’s wonderful dining to be had on the Tohoku Emotion:
From Hachinohe to Kuji, there is a prix-fixe lunch set (¥7200 for adults and ¥6600 for children).In the opposite direction there is the dessert buffet (¥4100 for adults, ¥3500 for children).A round trip meal ticket is ¥10,800/¥9600.

The narrow streets in the heart of Hachinohe City is lined with places to eat and drink. From the evenings it is packed with people, who come out to enjoy the famous fresh seafood that comes right from the coast of Hachinohe.
