We present a theory of tunneling spectroscopy for normal metal/Larkin-Ovchinnikov state junctions in which the spatial periodic modulation in the pair potential amplitude is taken into account. The tunneling spectra show the characteristic line shapes reflecting the minigap structures under the periodic pair potentials depending on the boundary condition of the pair potentials at the junction interface. These features are qualitatively different from the tunneling spectra of the Fulde-Ferrell state. We propose an experimental setup which identifies the superconducting state of CeCoIn5.
