Take a stroll through Hirosaki Park, a large public green space in the middle of town known for its large and storied castle. The castle, built in 1611 and reconstructed in 1810, acted as a base for the town's dominant Tsugaru clan, before its surrender to the Meiji government during the restoration. Its wood and stone form cuts an imposing figure over the cherry trees, scenic moats, and well-maintained traditional Japanese gardens that surround it. The Aomori apples sold from stalls around the park are a real treat.

Went on Cherry Blossom period, very nice view on both late Evening and Afternoon (yes I went twice on different time just to catch the different moment), less people as compared to Tokyo during Cherry Blossom period, at least I can find a seat on bench easily. And I personally feel Cherry Blossom in Aomori is better than Tokyo as well, different species I guess? 正午和旁晚都相当值得一去，整体来说比东京的樱花漂亮，关键是游客也少大概一百倍吧
Has a very large park area, with beautiful plants. Pretty castle.
