Did he swim from Aomori to Hokkaido, or the other way around?

"...the oldest person to swim across Tsugaru at 61"

"Tsugaru" alone would refer to a region within Aomori Prefecture, across which it is not possible to swim.

Might be a clue here;

..........but Tominaga ended up swimming 38 kilometres, ploughing northward...........

The currents are northbound. Swimming the other way would be an phenomenal achievement.
