So guys!
I just found out tonight I'm going to be living in Aomori starting at the end of July. I'm a little shocked because it's no where near I requested -- and I know NOTHING about northern Japan! It's gonna be an adventure, but the bottom line I'm looking for is --

Are they any VK venues in Aomori or am I totally screwed?
Big or small, I'm not terribly picky. I'm just gonna be a very sad girl if I can't get some concerts in while I'm over there.

Any information would be greatly appreciated. <3

I don't know Aomori, but a quick search has found Aomori Quarter. Lynch and Dir en grey are playing there in the next months.

I live in the far south of Japan (for now) and all I can say is that the night bus is your friend, haha. It's quite easy to do Tokyo or the bigger cities on a weekend and then just roll into work/school on a Monday morning.

You're fast :)

I'm going to live in Japan soon too so thanks for the tip!

Also, Sendai in Miyagi sometimes has VK lives. It's a bit closer than Tokyo, though still quite a ways away from Aomori. The Tohoku line, including the newer shinkansen that has like five stops, goes through there too, though... So it might also be an option.

Yeah, Sendai is really nice and has some good venues. The Zepp in Sendai is my favourite Zepp because of how small and perfectly located it is.

Yes, the Shinkansen is expensive but it makes it really simple to get from Aomori to Sendai. And there are a lot of lives in Sendai!

Sendai was pretty much the closest city I knew of with a scene. I looked into it and it's still a bit far, but worth the trek from time to time, I think. Thanks. 8D

Ah, yeah, I've been thinking about that. It looks like travel is pretty expensive so I'm not sure how often I'll be able to go farther south. Thanks for mentioning Quarter; I looked up their OHP. :3

Shinkansen and flights are very expensive. It costs me 16,000yen on the shinkansen to get to Tokyo (from Okayama), but a round trip on the night bus is only 17,000yen.
