We visited the park by late October and found that the place was equally stunning when compared with that of sakura time. Most of the tree leaves turned brown and red throughout the park and it was really enjoyable to stroll around taking photos and...More

The vast snow-covered grounds had quiet, serene calm even though there were early morning joggers and visitors to the park. I am not sure how the describe it and logically I know it’s the 21st century but somehow it also felt close to the old...More

Every time I go there, I have a nice walk around the castle and its fort. It's good through all seasons. The first time I went there was during the signature cherry blossom week. There were many tents of food and activities, so I could...More

We visited on 30 April 2017. The sakura blizzard has started a day or 2 earlier. So instead of the magnificent full blooms, we were instead treated to beautiful pink carpets. So blossoms wise, we rate it a 3 star; carpet and sakura tunnel at...More

Visited here in late-April, perfect timing for the cherry blossom. Crowded but worth it. This is a beautiful park at this time of year.

When sakura is over in southern parts, Hirosaki is the place to visit. Wonderful, beautiful park. Peaceful spots and active business areas. Castle is now under some repair, but still worth visiting here. Majestic Mount Iwaki gives nice contrast to blossom. There was some parking...More

Visited Hirosaki park on May 2, sakura cherry trees start falling and created another beautiful scene. The river and walking path were partly pink away. The wind starts blowing away the petals. Beautiful sight and still attractive.

The further north you are, the later the sakura comes into and stays in bloom ... we saw full-blown, voluminous, sakura in Hirosaki in late April 2016. If the weather has been co-operative this year, you very well may!

Hey! The expect the blooming to start on April 23 on average this year. The light up starts on April 22. It's from 6:30 PM to 10 PM every day until May 7. As such, you should be able to see the light up, but the flowers... More
