Fujita Memorial Garden is a large Japanese garden near Hirosaki park. It's divided into 2 parts, an upper and lower part, showcasing different plants and types of Japanese gardens. I consider it one of the best Japanese gardens in Tohoku. You can drink matcha in the teahouse. There is a combined ticked available for Hirosaki park, botanical garden and Fujita... More

As it was pouring rain we did not actually visit the gardens however we stopped for a glass of apple juice and an apple pastry. Bring a jacked as it is so cold inside the building.

This is a classic Japanese garden that exemplifies the peacefulness and quiet feelings that are generated in these places.

We arrived about 30 minutes before it was due to close and there was no-one in the garden. We also had a matcha in the tea house - and were left on our own to sip and enjoy. We sat on the tatami looking out at the garden for some time - no-one bothered us or hurried us out. We... More

Visited this garden in May 2016, and enjoyed the two levels of the garden. The upper part has a tea house and topiary around a lawn. The lower part has waterfalls and streams as well as another tea house. There is a most unusual zig zag bridge and a truly impressive waterfall. Recommend a visit if you are in Hirosaki.

We were expecting to see nice Japanese garden landscape but were rather disappointed as we did not find anything special about it. We are unlikely to revisit.

A short walk across the road from Hirosaki Castle and its gardens, this Japanese garden makes good use of Mount Iwaki as 'borrowed' landscape. Well worth a visit if you have time.

Watched the gardeners preparing the trees for winter as we entered the garden which was interesting to see. Takes such a long time to prepare them for the snow and learned something new there! Looked into the Western House first, which is nice inside with what looked like a very pleasant coffee shop, but dear me they were selling lots... More

A great turn of the 19th Century house, Jomon period museum and spectacular gardens overlooking Mt Iwate. Definitely worth a visit.
