Amazing place to enjoy the beauty of cherry blossom! 弘前車站前有100日元公車接送到弘前公園,小雨中我們搭乘小舟賞櫻,有日語解說,船夫還會高歌ㄧ曲,別有風情!若可行,安排住宿弘前市,留下來賞夜櫻會更好!

We came here and it simply amazing. Don't really need to say much more than check out the photos. Walk around the park, sit and eat and we were able to enjoy the sun!

Arrived the day before the official Cherry Blossom festival. The path leading up to the park was laden with cherry blossoms in bloom. Inside the park cherry blossoms were at various stages of blooming but a very lovely stroll through the park. Disappointing that there was a large amount of scaffolding near the castle tower - they're building or restoring... More

Very disappointed. The thing that particularly annoyed me was there is scaffolding and painting going on all over the place today (4th April 2017). They apparently reopened again on 1st April. They could have done that work while they were closed - it looks as if they just started. No sakura (cherry blossoms) have bloomed yet (not their fault). If... More

For a garden to look so effortless you know there are lots of somebodies working very hard to keep it beautiful and naturalistic but planned. The walkways are wide so you never feel frustrated when others also stop to admire the trees or the flowers or stop to take a photo. It is also well lit at night for an... More

Spent hours walking around this huge, beautiful park. While the best time to visit is in Spring when the plentiful cherry trees are blossoming (and Fall provides colourful trees), Winter has its own attraction, the snow. In week 2 of December when we were there, snow had covered most of the ground, benches and parts of the trees. Water in... More

Hirosaki Park Feng night (弘前公園夜楓) happened to be one of the high points of our 2016 Autumn leaf-viewing Trip. We were awed at the distinct colors and shapes of autumn maple leaves shown under diverse colored lights.

Hirosaki park is a spacious park around the Hirosaki Castle area. There are numerous sights here, including a botanical garden and Hirosaki Castle itself. There is a combined ticket for the castle park, botanical garden and nearby Fujita Memorial Garden available. The remains (reconstruction) of the castle are small and isn't much to look at, but the park itself offers... More

The park is beautiful. Even though I was not there during the Cherry Blossom season it was still an amazing site and very peaceful. The landscape is superb.

This photo of the "castle" is deceiving as it is only a small portion of what was a large structure in the past. The palace grounds are nice to walk through but choose a mild season
