Tohoku Travel Guide

Discounts and Deals

Northern Tohoku (Aomori, Iwate, and Akita prefectures) has an excellent way for foreigners staying in Japan one year or less to see the sights of the prefecture: the Northern Tohoku Welcome Card gets you discounts on public buses (50%), at hotels (10%), and at museums (discount varies). The free card is available upon presentation of your passport after filling out a short application form. For complete information in English, visit the Northern Tohoku Welcome Card website.
