Enjoy Hirosaki Castle's Pristine Surroundings

by Mieke

Hirosaki Castle may be a little far away from the main attractions of Japan
(in Aomori province, up north in Honshu), but this does mean that
it’s surrounded by marvellous nature, such as the pristine woods
around the castle grounds.

If you’d like to visit Hirosaki Castle, you should probably do it soon
for there are major renovation works scheduled from October 2014,
covering the moat and the main keep (which will be moved). They will
most likely take some 10 years, so this summer is a good
chance to see the last of the old keep!

Hi , We ended up taking this private taxi/ car trip in Aomori with Triple Lights as our trip was a very last minute plan & being the golden week - most hotels/ tours etc were sold out ! But we were still not giving hope to catch sakura of the season in Aomori as that seemed the only place to catch it ... so, with less time in hand - this was our best option to try to see as much of Aomori in...

We booked many private tours on this trip to Japan,but Yuki was the best tour guide.
