Lovely! Went during the winter, our visit was quite rushed (we had to catch a train to another place), but nevertheless enjoyable. It was covered in snow and it was perfect!

Really enjoyed the park at a time when the Chrysanthemum and Fall Foliage Festival was on display. The day we went was very very quiet, with hardly anyone around which suits us fine. Its a nice relaxing walk around the three moats and all the paths around the park, which included Japans oldest Somei Yoshino cherry blossom tree. Many of... More

Spectacular gardens within the Hirosaki Castle area. Spend a few hours wandering around the various areas then check out the main castle area. Also good to explore by bicycle. The lotus pond was a stand out view and in spring time the cherry blossom avenue walk along the boating lake would also be spectacular.

Lovely park which is free apart from Castle and botanical gardens. Impressive layouts of cherry trees, azaleas and other native plants- stunning views of mountains. Good day out. Shop does not take credit cards-beware.

Lots of talk about the cherry blossom, so I'll just say that the park is also lovely in the summer when there's no blossom about. There's also free WiFi (an example of the many nice little welcoming touches in the lovely city of Hirosaki).

You could spend all day here. Rent a bike from the tourist cent2r for 500 yen for the day. It makes seeing the sites a little easier, and so much fun too! The garden is great. You can vet a ticket for both gardens and 4he castle for 500 yen. Its worth it. The castle museum is pretty neat, very... More

We were very, very lucky to visit (8 May) when the cherry blossoms were in full bloom. Due to recent cold weather the blossoms were delayed for a week or so but that suited us fine as we had not expected to see them. We were on an organised tour from our cruise ship (Sun Princess) which had docked in... More

Hirosaki park, think Spring, think Sakura blossoms against Hirosaki Castle in the background. That was a few years ago in Spring, this time I came for the winter Blossoms, 雪花。 I took a bus from Hirosaki station to the Park. The ride was about 10 mins. Upon boarding the bus, I would confirm with the bus driver on my intended... More

Unfortunately we did not catch up the Cherry blossom season, but still we enjoyed the quiet and peaceful atmosphere in this park.It looks like everything is getting ready for the Mitsuri!

I cant stop dreaming about this place. Too bad I was on a business visit with limited time, an afternoon and a evening. The cherry blossoms where in magnificent bloom, weather was unbelievable, the park and Palace where beautiful, the people where so nice and this is the thing I cant forget, the apple juice. Its the most wonderful thing.... More
