Hirosaki is a pleasant castle town in the southern part of Aomori prefecture, the northernmost on Japan's main island. The town developed in the 17th Century and became the political and cultural centre for much of this part of northern Japan.
“Visit Hirosaki for cherry blossom in late April and early May and for access to the Shrakami-Sanchi National Park”
Simon King, Director
Hirosaki's castle is its main attraction and the surrounding streets and many of the buildings have been well preserved, giving a nice atmosphere to the place. The city is famous throughout Japan for its 'sakura' cherry blossoms in spring, its colourful summer Neputa festival and also for being the biggest producer of apples in Japan - don't leave town without trying one!
