I was extremely tired but filled with happiness because I was a) heading up to one of my favourite cities, Hakodate. And b) it was such a beautiful day filled with blue skies and sunny spells all day long. And the weather looked bright for a next few days.
From Aomori Station I had to goto Shin-Aomori Station to catch the early Hayate Shinkansen to Shin-Hakodate-Hokuto Station then Hakodate Station. This journey in total including the waiting time took approx 2 hours. Again, you have to book your seat at the JR office in order to get on the Hayate line because all seats are reservation only. I had a small fried chicken rice sandwich with a bottle of sparkling grape soda…It was a smooth journey overall.
