A-Factory is located next to the Wa-Reese Nebuta Float Museum. If you’ve ever been to Aomori you know that it is famous for its apples. A-Factory has a lot of edible souvenirs, a few places to eat and rest, and upstairs is home to a small cider tasting area.
Unfortunately, the cider testing isn’t free. It is ¥100 for 30cc, ¥200 for 40cc and ¥300 for 90cc. And of course, if you find one you like, you can purchase it here. They also have Black Cat service to pack and send your souvenirs to you which is really neat if you live very far away (like Tokyo).
