Hirosaki Cherry Blossom Festival 2017

Hirosaki Cherry Blossom Festival 2017

2017 marks the 100th year of Hirosaki’s famous Cherry Blossom Festival.

The area around Hirosaki Castle is well known as one of the best cherry blossom flower sites in Japan. Visitors to the site in late April can marvel at over 2,600 cherry blossom trees in full bloom. In 2015, the castle tower was moved to its temporary position to repair the stonewall under the castle’s original position. This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to view the festival and castle from this unique perspective. At night, the castle will be illuminated. Don’t miss the spectacular night-view of the cherry blossoms around Hirosaki Castle.
