Hirosaki in Cherry Blossom Season

Go early in the morning to one of Japan's best spots


Hirosaki Castle is closed annually for winter, from November 24th to March 31st.

Latest on Hirosaki Castle

Hirosaki in Aomori Prefecture is known for its Cherry Blossom Festival held in the park surrounding Hirosaki Castle. A fairly huge park, I must say. The blossom peak is during the Japanese "Golden Week" vacation period (late April-early May). So expect lots and lots of people. If you come early in the morning, say by 5 am, (this is what I did) then you can find a nice quiet spot. Also, early in the morning, the light and color are at their best!
