The charm of
Hotel Tappi


The lobby welcomes guests with a fine view of the Tsugaru Strait. Enjoy the majestic view from Hotel Tappi, which stands at the northern tip of the Tsugaru Peninsula.

Tsugaru Strait

On fine days, Hokkaido looks very close from the lobby.


The Tsugaru Strait connects Aomori and Hokkaido. Warm and cold currents flow into the strait, and the current is fast.
In the strait, the currents run into each other, producing an abundance of plankton for small fish to feed on. These small fish in turn provide a great source of food for bigger ones, and the fish that swim in this bountiful sea put on plenty of fat.
Fish from the Tsugaru Strait is of first-class quality in terms of fattiness, firmness, and absolutely everything else.
