Hirosaki Park, Hirosaki
(4.6/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Take a stroll through Hirosaki Park, a large public green space in the middle of town known for its large and storied castle. The castle, built in 1611 and reconstructed in 1810, acted as a base for the town's dominant Tsugaru clan, before its surrender to the Meiji government during the restoration. Its wood and stone form cuts an imposing figure over the cherry trees, scenic moats, and well-maintained traditional Japanese gardens that surround it. The Aomori apples sold from stalls around the park are a real treat. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Hirosaki holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Hirosaki Park and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
