It still had snow at its crest. So nice. It stood out from every angle so one could take many photos of it.

Unmistakably, this beautiful snow capped mountain can be seen standing prominently and majestically above the plains, towns and villages when one approaches Hirosaki from Aomori!

Not as perfect as Mt Fuji but spectacular nonetheless the mountain dominates Hirosaki. Super pics from Hirosaki Castle Park and the apple park.

Besides picture perfect views and photo ops from afar, a great ski area. Also a great place to visit Onsen or hot bath resorts in the foothills of Mt Iwaki.

this was an excellent place to visit, just be mindful that the Shrine is separate from the Skyline to the top of the mountain. They are about 6 Kilometers apart and there is no direct bus from town to the Skyline
