See the "snow cherry blossoms" at Hirosaki Castle Park

Hirosaki Castle was completed in 1611 under the ownership of a samurai clan named Tsugaru. In the past, the castle was designed with 5 floors, but over time what visitors see is only 3 floors. Even so, it is splendid and stands out among thousands of sakura trees. 
In spring, Tohoku tourists flock to Hirosaki Castle Park to admire the cherry blossoms in full bloom. But when winter comes, this place is really a masterpiece of nature because the ice and snow have turned it into a cold wonderland. 

Every night from December to February, the area near the Otemon exit of the castle is illuminated with warm pink lights. It was like blooming cherry blossoms under a white mist. It is truly a spotless beauty, imprinted deeply in the subconscious of every visitor.
