Hirosaki Park, Hirosaki

4.5
#1 of 9 in Parks in Hirosaki
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.

  • Winter (January/February) a whole system of sculptures, igloos, obelisks and lanterns... snow is set up by the residents and students in the city. The snow covered Park is animated by this event as well as an installation of strings and plates that protect plants. Pleasant walk.

  • It's said to be a cherry, but it's not right, nothing, not even a tree, and it's hard to imagine what it's like to watch Cherry. The former city is a small castle.

  • At the place of Hirosaki castle. A good place to walk around and feel the historical atmosphere. Also demonstrate the logical of castle defence.
  • Beautiful park. Very big and a great place during sakura time. Fun filled festival along with the old fort honmaru. Must visit place in aomori prefecture.
  • A well-kept castle park boasting one of the most impressive cherry blossom festivals in Japan. Includes an attached arboretum (entry fee) that is recommended for a visit. Conveniently reached via Hirosaki station, either by bus, taxi or 20-30min walk depending on pace.
  • A gorgeous park in the spring. Get's oretty crowded, but overall has some amazing sights, and places to relax.
