Hachinohe Yataimura Miroku Yokocho
Hachinohe Yataimura Miroku Yokocho is the street booth district located in the middle of downtown Hachinohe. Both sides of the narrow street that stretches from Mikkamachi to Muikamachi, are crammed with street booths that only eight people or so fit into. In this district, many of the booths serves dishes with local ingredients such as fresh sea food, a symbol of harbor town Hachinohe, Senbei-jiru, one of the local cuisine and other standard dishes of Japanese style pubs, Izakaya. The very warm atmosphere makes it easy for first timers to drop in, we recommend that you bar hop to a few places.

The retro Showa landscape
Since there are Japanese old-style mail boxes and wooden telegraph poles on this street, you can enjoy the recreation of the “Showa period,” especially between the end of World War II to around 1980 when the Japanese economy rapidly grew. You are sure to have a great time with drinks in this retro atmosphere!
Small booths where warm conversations start
In the homey booths that have a capacity of only 10 people or so, conversations with another customer start naturally. Since there are many regulars, they sometimes tell tourists their recommended sightseeing spots and souvenirs in these booths, so you can drop by alone.
Senbei-jiru, unique to Hachinohe
Although each booth has their own tastes, every booth uses ingredients of Hachinohe. The reason is because there is a rule in Hachinohe Yataimura Miroku Yokocho that every booth has to do their best to serve dishes made with local ingredients. Senbei-jiru is a distinctive dish of Hachinohe and something you should try.
Every year Dai Norimaki Taikai is held from edge to edge in Miroku Yokocho. This event is held on the last Sunday of May and many people visit every year. Reservation is not required and participants make norimaki, a sushi rolled in seaweed, that is about 80 meters long together. You can take some of the norimaki that you made home for free. This event would be a good memory of your trip.
