Hirosaki Park is located in Aomori Prefecture, 3.5 hours by Shinkansen from Tokyo, and one of the best Sakura cherry blossom spots in Japan. Hirosaki Castle with 400 years history is set within the Hirosaki Park and famous for its over 2,600 cherry trees of 50 different varieties in spring.
Starting with the Sakura cherry blossom tunnel on the west moat, the cherry blossoms of Hirosaki Park enchant visitors with a variety of displays throughout the viewing season.

And there is a secret why the cherry blossoms in Hirosaki are so beautiful. The reason is in the pruning technique. Apples are a local specialty of Aomori prefecture, and when cherry trees are pruned, the apple's pruning technique is applied. That technique makes cherry blossoms have more buds than general ones.

At night, sakura cherry blossoms and the castle are illuminated, you shouldn't miss it!

本丸、二の丸、北の郭をそれぞれ隔てる濠です。二の丸から本丸へは下乗橋が、北の郭から本丸へは鷹丘橋がかかります。 周囲が石垣で組まれているため独特の趣きがあります。
