Located in the north end of mainland of Honshu, Misawa City is home to Misawa Air Base and is a popular tourist destination with beautiful forests, beaches, lakes, museums and hot springs. Located next to the air base, the Misawa Aviation and Science Museum is the nation’s largest aeronautical science museum, and a must-see attraction. The city is home to various great eateries, as well. Visit Akanoren to sample local delicacy called “barayaki” or grilled beef rib, and Paddy’s, a military-friendly, smoke-free Irish pub offering authentic Irish beers.
