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.

  • No hands, watching TV in the ajigasawa Hotel happens to be of hirosaki Park is lighted and aired and not go thoughts visit the Chrysanthemum Chrysanthemum Festival also fine. Autumn is the best! Cherry blossom season might be good but, the fall foliage season. And not too many tourists like the cherry blossom season, which means that it's not it. Really beautiful.

  • Hirosaki Park is too familiar. I'd never had a thing for foot leaves and chrysanthemum Festival is the Cherry Blossom Festival and the Festival went nearly every time. Because I know even if you don't Park all the way to pass by car along the moat of the hirosaki Park, a beautiful autumn leaves. I went in when I went to the Park this time, just a little bit because there was time, the Then the autumn of cherry blossoms in the moat is also exiting, leaves a variety of colors, very beautiful and you!! ️ night and fewer people in brings out the foliage and very beautiful ✨ ✨ is cold, but I recommend hirosaki Park during the Festival nights ❣ ️

  • 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.
  • Gorgeous sakura blossoms, epic views of Mount Iwate, the famed Sakura Matsuri at the end of April, the poignant castle ruins... Our visit was exactly timed at all the right reasons to definitely put this on top of my most favorite places!
  • Visited during cherry blossom festival. Wonderful crowd and lively atmosphere

Where to stay in Hirosaki

Though the urban sprawl of Hirosaki goes on for quite a way, the center of town where the accommodations can be found remains fairly meager. Next to the main train station, you'll find a set of standard, high-rise hotels, with some offering a few more facilities than others, including spas, pools, and restaurants. Look to the northwest for the more traditional establishments. Next to the castle and the park of cherry blossoms that surrounds it, the accommodations include some charmingly decorated "ryokan" (traditional guesthouses), and a couple of boutiques.
