Enjoy Hirosaki Castle's Pristine Surroundings

by Mieke - TripleLights travel specialist

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!

We had a good day with Hisashi. His English is good and he is friendly and informative. We chose where we wanted to go and he organised it.

“ Enjoying Sakura at our own pace ”

Excellent
2 months ago Traveler: Sok -   Tour Guide: Green Taxi

We took the Cherry blossoms of Ashino Park & Tsuru-no-maihashi Bridge Half-day Tour. It is the best decision. The driver arrives early to pick us up and drives us safely to each destination and allow us time to enjoy the sakura and the sights at our leisure. He understand we have a plane to catch but never rush us. We highly recommend anyone travelling to Aomori to book the Green Taxi tours.
