[Hiroe cherry blossom guide]

city hall is a government office for the public. During the cherry blossom period, the top floor platform of the Hirosaki City Hall on the south side of Hirosaki Castle will be open for everyone to visit. It starts at 9:00, stops at 4:30 in the afternoon, and closes at five. After entering the building, there are security guards who will take the elevator to the top floor. Here you can see the cherry blossom forest from a height, and the distance is like a pink cloud.
[Aomori Hirosaki City sees cherry blossoms]
The area around Hirosaki Park is surrounded by the moat, and more than 2,600 cherry trees are planted in the park. This season, because of the wind and rain, the scenes seen in a day or two will be very different. On the first day, I saw the cherry blossoms in the rain, and the next day, I came here again. It is the "flower bud" where the petals float in the water, and the "sakura rug" where the petals gather in the water to completely bury the river. This is also an important reason why Hirosaki cherry blossoms are popular. Walking along the moat all the way, every time the wind blows through the petals, there is an exclamation around.
[Aomori Hirosaki Castle]
Hirosaki Castle was originally built in 1611 as a five-story building. It was destroyed by lightning in 1627. The Hirosaki Castle, which was rebuilt in 1810, is a three-storey building. It is the only building in the Tohoku region of Japan in the Edo period. . In 2015, the translation work was carried out to repair the city wall. It is expected to be moved back in 2021, and the maintenance of the city wall will be completed until 2026.
The entrance to the castle tower and the northern city of Guo need to be charged. When the weather is good, you can see the rocky mountain in the distance on the observation platform. During the cherry blossom season, you can enjoy the scenery of the cherry blossom, Hirosaki Castle and Iwakiyama.
