Want to try sweeeeet onigiri?
OSEKIHAN, or literally red rice, is a special dish eaten all over Japan at times of celebration, made by cooking mochi rice together with red beans. They are usually ate with GOMASHIO, sesami and salt.
However, here in Aomori, OSEKIHAN is cooked with sugar!
You can have a try of this sweet onigiri at convenience stores (I found this at a Lawson), so check out this local speciality!

As the conference venue is the museum and rather distant from the city centre, the lunch locations are fairly limited.
There are two restaurants around the museum. We also offer Bento-Box lunch on request (by 16 Aug).
Regarding the restaurants, please take a look at 'Food' page on this website.
The PSi TOHOKU accepts orders of Bento-box lunch for two days (Day1: 30 August, Day2: 31 August) as follows.
We are excited to announce that we have added two can’t-miss programs to PSi 2015 TOHOKU, Screening of Experimental Films by Shuji Terayama and Butoh Workshop.
All registrants for the conference can join these programs for free. For signing up, please get a ticket from Peatix.
The rainy season will soon be here in Tokyo. It usually lasts to mid July. We call this season “Tsuyu”. It literally means “plum rain”, because it coincides with the plum ripening season. Sounds very poetic, but actually it is very humid and damp.
Although “Tsuyu” is a gloomy time, there are some upsides to it. One of them is “Ajisai” (hydrangea) viewing. Hydrangeas change their color depending on the surrounding environment from faint color to blue, pink and deep blue,. Just like performing a magic trick. Their beauty is even accentuated in the rain. Enjoying hydrangeas decorated with raindrops is one attraction before summer heat kicks in.
