This tourist office is located at the right side of JR Hirosaki Central Exit. Many helpful tourism brochures for Hirosaki and Aomori Prefecture are available. English speaking staff on duty is polite and very helpful during my visits in 2017 and again this summer. They even helped us where to wait for hotel pick up at the station and what type of transportation to take for city sightseeing and visits to other Aomori Prefecture's top attractions. Office is small but conveniently located just at the exit of the JR Station.

The staff at Hirosaki Tourist Information Center were very helpful, giving me a map to Hirosaki, together with multiple tips about what to visit, where to eat. It is also possible to rent a bicycle, which in my opinion is the best way to get around, if you can handle a few hills. Cant comment on the staff's English skills, but they easily adapted to my lackluster Japanese. The center is close to Hirosaki station and has a good central location, from where to start your Hirosaki adventure.

We had a JR tourist pass and arrived on the express train early with a reserved seat. Need not have booked our seat as most have returned to work. We sought out a cafe for breakfast. The young girl has a friend here in Japan from our Australian home town. She was very helpful and delighted to talk to us. Took two photos of the giant Neputa float. I imagine will be used in their August festival.

Its service with a smile here that makes one so welcomed to this city. The lady that attended to me was so humble to say that she spoke little english...in reality her english was excellent! Information provided was good an accurate.

The young ladies had a reasonable grasp of English and could assist us with our requests for information about bus services and pick up locations for hotel shuttle cars. Always ready with a cheery smile and you can't say better than that when it's rainy.

Most of the information centres outside of Tokyo were really helpful and this was no exception. There's a restaurant here too but I didn't eat here. The have a display of local arts and crafts as well as an explanation (in Japanese) of the lacquer process on the second floor.
There's also a gift shop to pick up on the requisite Aomori trinkets and foodstuff if you are so inclined. It's situated near the south gate of the park so a nice quick AC detour to get out of the sun.

When I arrived in Hirosaki, I went in the tourist information office for some English brochures. They only had one. The staff who helped spoke great English and answered all of my questions. I got to see what I wanted to see, especially the Neputa festival and had a great time.

Hirosaki really seems set up to welcome tourists. The information centers in the JR station and in the city hall complex were friendly, patient, and helpful.

They are also two of the sites for the "cycle net" that allows you rent a basic bicycle for Y500/day (or an electric assisted one for Y1000). A bicycle is a great way to explore the town and its vicinity... which is comfortably flatish but a bit too big to settle for just walking.
