This park gives you all you need to know about apples. There is a shop with apple-related merchandise, a cafe with apple pie, a museum of apple lore, and it is all set in a grove of apple trees. The trees are carefully labelled in Japanese and in English. There are many varieties of apples, including the Flower of Kent,... More

The Googlemaps direction to this place takes you into some poor farmers orchard and ends in you having to reverse down a very narrow strip to get yourself back out of a messy situation. Googlemaps is not reliable at all to get you here so instead, mark it on the map and then follow your own sensible path to the... More

These apples are not for export to America. Although ordinary looking, their taste and juiciness are utterly fabulous. All of us on the bus were munching away, and exclaiming over their flavor.

Interesting if you like seeing huge orchards and be amazed at the range of things the humble apple can make! Mind you the apples here are huge and totally delicious .. they are cheap be European standards but cheaper still off site..

Hirosaki Apple park is a mix of history and modern culture placed in an apple orchard. The park is popular for picnics for local school children as well. You are able to pick from the orchard or buy apples in the small store.

I visited Hirosaki a few month ago, and I am pleased to tell that I love this city. I never heard about Hirosaki since my wife told me that we should travel to there after we visited Ofunato, and it had not any problem because we use JR Easr Pass that we can use Shinkansen to go every where in...

Go to the lookout first to locate yourself. Take in the orchards, the different varieties of apples on your walk to the lookout. Back down to the gift shop you'll find food to eat and lots of lovely gifts to buy, with an apple theme. The gallery is worth wondering through (all Japanese, but you get the gist). If you... More

We drove a rental car to this apple park and it was near to Hirosaki city. There was guided tour to experience the process of apple-plucking. The young guy staff spoke fluent English. We had our late lunch there, a plate of Apple curry rice and apple pie, of course with Apple-flavored ice-cream.

It was alright, there wasn't really much to it. A big field of apple trees, a gift shop, and a nice view point. But not really worth the 40 minute bus ride IMO

The day we went, the weather was nice and clear. It seemed like an idyllic place to picnic, especially for families with children. There is not much to the park itself, just a park surrounded by apple orchards. However, there are nice views of Mt. Iwaki, as well as a cafe that serves interesting apple-related foods and products. Including: apple... More
