Hirosaki Park, Hirosaki

(320+ reviews on the web)
Nature / Park
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.

  • Very disappointed. The thing that particularly annoyed me was there is scaffolding and painting going on all over the place today (4th April 2017). They apparently reopened again on 1st April. They co...  more »

  • 從弘前車站,坐100圓巴士可以輕鬆抵達弘前公園。 造訪時弘前雪燈祭才剛剛結束,到處都有工程進行善後,雪地被工程車弄得更加難走,從外圍一路走進來很辛苦,但到了核心區,見到那弘前城後,會覺得很值得,為了要整修城牆,弘前城位置轉移,還有一個小看臺可以登高欣賞,不過弘前城冬天是封閉的,除了城之外,公園內也有不少景點可去,許多地方冬天更是免費參觀,中央的賣店,可以看看土產還不錯,換裝拍照就沒興趣了。 整體來...  more »

  • 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.
  • Quite big and nice for a walk. Although the castle is under restoration, you can still have a look on its appearance.
  • I came here in spring the first time and fell in love with the place.
  • Excellent park next to the castle, especially during cherry blossom season.
  • During cherry blossom bloom the whole park is basically snowing blossoms.
