A not very interesting park. We didn't visit the castle as those in Japan have mostly been rebuilt in modern and don't have anything in them.

This is an extremely large park surrounding Horosaki Castle. The park itself is free however there are two paid entrance fee gardens and the castle within the park grounds. There are many bus stops around the park as well it is also close to the preserved samurai houses and Nebuta factory. Some of the gardens become wild in the summer... More

We arrived Aomori at a very strategic time...during the sakura festival 2016! The place was awesome, full of sakura blossoms. It was soooo beautiful that I would recommend for everyone visiting Japan should go...to see sakura blossom. The Aomori apples sold here were very sweet and crunchy! Love itu...love it!

Visited the stunning Hirosaki park during the sakura season and found its reputation is totally well deserved. Lovely trees, moats and the Hirosaki castle, plus food stalls and music playing as part of the Sakura Festival, make this place one of Tohoku's favourite cherry blossom spots.

The peak of the cherry blossoms was partially over but we could still enjoy the remaining ones. The cherry blossoms were a week early this year.

We saw the park about 10 days before the Cherry Blossom Festival was to begin in April. The trees were budding, but not in full bloom. It was still lovely and thankfully, it was not crowded. I was told that when the festival begins (check for the exact dates each year), the crowds ramp up. We hired a driver to... More

Apparently the cherry blossom flowering peaked this year on 22nd April two weeks ago for this park and 350000 people visited on the one day!! We may have missed the full bloom but today we were able to take great photos of the castle with cherry blossoms and the snow covered three peaked mount Iwaki in the background as only... More

We have visited the park by the end of April and lucky to view cherry trees in full bloom there. The park was full of people and you could take pictures from whatever angles you like and they all looked beautiful. You could also see Mt. Iwaki at a distance when the weather was better and lots of people were... More
