When we first entered the garden it didn't look like much, but then we walked down the hill to the lower garden, which was beautiful. It had small bridges connecting different areas, a waterfall, and a tea ceremony room.

Also, the Western house connected to the garden had a very nice cafe, serving all sorts of delicious apple and non-apple related treats. We got a chocolate molten cake dessert and apple pie, as well as apple tea, all of which was delicious.

If you also plan to visit the Hirosaki Castle, and botanical gardens there is a ticket that gives admission to all 3, that is a slight discount.

There are countless photo opportunities in/around the house and in the surrounding garden. While masses of people all gather in the Hirosaki park, this is your quiet oasis to get away from it all and enjoy some unspoiled nature.

We absolutely loved the apple pie there. we tried two different types, but both were great. I also had a apple vinegar with soda and love it! I'll definitely go back for some more!

The former residence of a Meiji era industrialist is now a beautiful cafe serving a selection of apple pie and apple cidre from all over the Hirosaki area. The seats in the sunroom are the best.
The garden is split into an upper and lower portion. Beautiful views of Mt. Iwaki. There's a scenic fake waterfall, too.

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 of China made Christmas tat at high prices which rather spoiled the look of the house.

But onto the gardens, which as the further you went down towards the lake/pond the better it got. Part of the pond was sectioned off for repair which looked messy but the other views around more than made up for it.

Nice tea ceremony house which looked quite spectacular with the autumn colours in full display.

I did get some very good photos, and on the day we went it was quite quiet, very warm and pleasant to walk around which took around 40 mins at slow pace. and would say its worth a visit at 300yen (or part of a multi price ticket with the castle which was cheaper)

There are 2 levels to this garden. The upper level has a western style restaurant and a Japanese style teahouse. The lower level is where the usual features of the garden are, as in a pond, bridges and lanterns. There is also a waterfall.

There were only a handful visitors when I went. Some just came for the restaurant. I had a matcha and sweets at the Japanese teahouse with views of the surroundings. It was very enjoyable.

This traditional Japanese garden is in a perfect spot to see Mt. Iwaki to the west to where the mountain becomes part of the garden when viewing everything there. The plantings in the garden are also absolutely beautiful. I've uploaded some photos I took there a couple months ago when the autumn foliage was at its peak. I imagine it is equally beautiful in the spring when the cherry blossoms are blooming as there are quite a few large cherry blossom trees in the garden. The paths that wind through this garden are very easy to navigate and there are so many beautiful spots in this garden I found it well-worth spending an extra hour longer in there than I planned.

The garden is part of the Castle Gardens complex which also includes an Arboretum and castle ruins. The garden is modest in size at 22 m2, so one could walk round in ~15-minutes – but go leisurely and spend at least an hour! It's on two levels, with a waterfall, & great views to the lower level which is dominated by a lake with island. One needs to negotiate steps and/or slopes to move between levels, but if this is difficult there are separate entrances to each level. Its easily accessible via the 100¥ “loop bus” from the station, which also goes to the Park’s other entrances. I visited in early May & caught the end of the Cherry Blossoms. There are many seats to relax in & admire the many views, plus a tea room with a view in a Taisho period European style house. There's also a café in a 1917, western style building. Definitely worth a visit.

We visited this garden as part of a ticket for three nearby gardens (including the botanical garden and Hirosaki Castle). Fabulous views of Mt Iwaki. Huge 100+ year old weeping cherries tree.

The gardens are located only a short walk from the entrance to Hirosaki Castle but seem to be much less visited which is a shame.

A great parcel of land has allowed the designers to develop a beautiful garden setting at the top and down to the lowlands below. Well maintained and easy to navigate.

The find for us however is the small cafe behind the main entrance. After walking the gardens we decided to have a green tea and sit for a bit. The welcome we received was the friendliest we’ve received in Japan (amongst many many friendly receptions). The two ladies were welcoming, warm, engaging and interested in our travels throughout Japan and our homeland. We chatted at length even though their English was limited and our Japanese more so.

We even managed to sample a giant and tasty red apple at their behest which they were extremely proud to say came from the region and were the best in all Japan. We agree!

What wonderful ambassadors they are and what beautiful humans as well. This is why you travel. Thank you so much.
