"Hirosaki Castle Snow Lantern Festival" is held at and around Hirosaki Castle of Aomori Prefecture, which creates the fantasy world of snow and illumination.
Approximately 150 Japanese style lanterns made out of snow are constructed throughout the Hirosaki Park. Each lantern is illuminated by candles with Ukiyoe paintings of warriors. At night, the park illumination of the pine trees and the snow-covered Tenshukaku (the castle tower) creates a fascinating atmosphere. Besides the snow lanterns, about 300 miniature igloos(kamakura) lit with candles are on display around the Hasu Pond. There are also displays of projection mapping on the large snow sculptures accompanied by music.

A really pleasant and historic park in the middle of the city. Lots of historic buildings and structures to view and take photos, and large number of trees that are pretty in the Fall.

The whole complex is surrounded by sakura. At there are lots of mini as well. I'm pretty sure it will be out of this world to be here during hanami. It's also very pretty during autumn!

Hirosaki Park is located in Aomori Prefecture. It is very popular and a lot of people
enjoy admiring the traditional Japanese scenery here.
We used to visit Hirosaki Park in spring. There were about 2600 sakura trees in bloom.
Together with Hirosaki Castle makes us feel like being in an unspeakable story.
