Hirosaki castle

Hirosaki castle (弘前城)
built originally in 1611 and reconstructed in 1810. This place is one of the most famous places to see cherry blossoms. Unlike most places in Japan where the cherry blossoms bloom in April, since Hirosaki is located in northern Honshu the flowers do not usually bloom until early May.
