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.

  • 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.

  • So if you come to hirosaki, Aomori hirosaki Castle I'd arrived. Around the castle is surrounded by trees, we walked on and on. Are in the Park? Seems to be walking the course. There is nice and full. See Castle, good luck to the Castle I walked was paid.

  • Beautiful park in any season but mist beautiful(and busy) during sakura season. Ample facilities such as toilets and benches, and a convenience store nearby. Parking is 200en per hour
  • 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.

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.
