Visit Hachinohe まるで、ワンダーランド

VISIT HACHINOHE is a DMO representing and promoting the Hachinohe Area, focusing on the sustainable and progressive development of the community. With the very real problems of depopulation and subsequent economic hardships faced by rural communities, our organization is committed to facing these difficulties head-on. Starting from April 2018 our organization has committed to projects that will continue to develop the Hachinohe Area’s tourism, local industries and business in order to positively grow the community and increase its competitiveness as a culturally and opportunity rich city, not just on a regional scale, but on a national and international scale as well.

Our organization aims for simple goals: to raise awareness about the unique and amazing attributes of the Hachinohe Area on a domestic and international level, to establish Hachinohe as a brand known for its quality and excellence, to increase the number and satisfaction of both visitors related to tourism and business, to continue to support the growth of local businesses and entrepreneurs, and to work towards increasing the residential population of the area as a whole.
