transfer at shin-aomori station

Transfer at Shin-Aomori station

I have to change a train from Shinkansen Hayabusa 25 to Limited Exp. Super Hakucho 25 at Shin Aomori sation in 10 minute on 12/28 for Hakodate. I have tried to find the way to transfer. However, I can not get any clear information or map. The Shin Aomori station lay out does not show any clear way. Please suggest. Thank you very much. Voravit J.


Hello Voravit J.

While I do not have a transfer guide, I can tell you from my own experience that it is easy to make the transfer, even in 5min.

The station has two areas, the Shinkansen area and normal train area. You'll have to go trough the Shinkansen Exit gate to the normal platform. There are signs everywhere to show the way and you can always follow the other travelers, that will be making the same transfer (there is not much else to do at Shin-Aomori).

Hope this helps,
