Aomori Prefecture – Hirosaki Cherry Blossom Festival

Hirosaki Park in Aomori Prefecture’s Hirosaki City is home to Japan’s oldest Yoshino cherry tree. The park features around 52 different varieties and 2,600 total cherry trees. Over 300 of the Yoshino cherry trees in the park are over 100 years old, and since these trees have branches that extend far to the sides and grow larger flowers, they create an incredible cherry blossom viewing experience.

Any direction you look is filled with views of Hirosaki Castle or towering cherry trees.
Hirosaki Castle was once destroyed in a fire caused by a lightning strike, but it was rebuilt in 1810.
The castle’s tower, scaffolds, bridge, moat, and other features still remain as they were back then, and in the present day the castle has been designated as an important cultural asset of Japan.
