If you're planning a trip to Hirosaki, Aomori Pref.,be sure to go in spring when cherryblossoms are so beautiful. There are about 2600 cherry trees in the park where the donjon(castle tower) is located. Now the repair of the stonewall of the moat is underway and the donjon is moved to different place in the park. 50種、2600本の桜が見事な公園です。昨年訪れた時は、午後、夜間のライトアップ、朝と三回訪れました。 本丸石垣修理工事のために、内濠が埋め立てられておりました。さくらまつり期間中は内濠が解放されて、歩くことができました。その後天守曳家が執り行われました。 今年は天主と下乗橋と桜というカメラスポットの定番は見られません。曳家された天主閣と桜の新しい景色を楽しめるでしょう。 さくらまつり期間中は市役所本館の屋上が解放され、桜と岩木山が一望できます。...

We visited the park in winter - late december - and it was interesting and provides you with an idea of what the park must be like when the 3,000 odd trees are all in bloom. I don't mind visiting parks in winter - there is still plenty to see and it provides a different perspective on the parks. It... More

It isn't a very big park and during Autumn it isn't looking at its best. But it is a nice walk and runners use it for short jogs. The castle adds another layer of interest but even it's still under reconstruction at the moment.

This is a very nice area especially in spring when cherry blossoms are blooming, and fall with fall colors. The castle itself is rather small and not much exhibition in it. At the moment,the rock walls are under repair. The moved the castle without breaking it! The way they do is simply amazing.

Cherry blossom season is the best. However winter time is ok if you ski. Mt iwaki is the place to go.

Hirosaki Park is a large, scenic, interesting, and well-established free public park. The late-April cherry blossoms are gorgeous; it's no wonder they attract such crowds. They are every bit as nice as Tokyo's! But the park is still worth exploring even if you don't happen to view the sakura blossoms, The festival of mums and fall foliage in mid-autumn is... More

The park is huge and there are many picturesque areas. It's the centre of town so very easy to access. The castle itself requires tickets to access but it is currently closed while they rebuild the foundation and move it slightly. I believe it will reopen in 2016? I didn't bother paying to get closer to the castle. The picture... More

No cherry blossoms, of course, when we were there in the middle of summer but the park was still nice and green. We took the local train from Aomori to Hirosaki, then took the 100Y loop bus to the park. We managed to spend an hour walking around this park even in the summers heat. Like all the castles we...

We entered the park through thesouthern gate on a hot and humid day in mid-July. The actual gate itself was something to marvel at. It was made of wood and stood imposing as a sentry to the park. Once inside the park, there were many varieties of trees some of which were hundred of years old. The Sakura flowers were... More
