We start off in Aomori. After picking you up in one of our luxurious private vehicles, we will drive you through the three destinations of your choice.

 

Option 01: Hirosaki Castle (Recommended)

Hirosaki Castle Hirosaki Cherry Blossom Private Package Tour

Hirosaki Castle  was built in 1611 by the Tsugaru Clan. A three-story castle tower, fortified moats, castle gates and some corner turrets (yagura) survive or were reconstructed. The castle is located in Hirosaki Park, a spacious public park of about 0.6 square kilometers.

Entrance fee (separate from tour price, to be purchased on the spot)
Adults: JPY310 per person (castle only)

 

Option 02: Hirosaki Park (Recommended) 

Hirosaki Park Hirosaki Cherry Blossom Private Package Tour

Hirosaki Park is one of Japan’s best cherry blossom spots. With its abundance of over 2500 trees, cherry blossom tunnels, petal filled moats, numerous pleasant picnic areas, rental rowing boats, many varieties of cherry trees and illuminations in the evenings, it feels like multiple great cherry blossom spots combined into a single one. A festival is held annually from April 23 to May 5, when the blossoms are usually in bloom.

 

Option 03: Samurai District (Recommended)

Samurai District Hirosaki Cherry Blossom Private Package Tour

When the Tsugaru Clan sided with Tokugawa Ieyasu at the battle of Sekigahara in 1600, they ensured their authority as the feudal lords of Hirosaki for the 250 years of the Edo Period. Hirosaki Castle was to be the base from which they would rule, and around which a typical castle town developed.

Like in all castle towns, the samurai, who served the Tsugaru Clan, lived in residences surrounding the castle of their feudal lord. Today, a section north of Hirosaki Castle remains preserved as a former samurai district. Although much of the area looks like an ordinary modern Japanese residential area today, three samurai houses and one merchant house have been preserved and are open to the public:

 

Option 04: Neputa Mura

Neputa Mura Hirosaki Cherry Blossom Private Package Tour

The Neputa Mura or “Neputa Village” is a museum about Hirosaki’s famous festival, the Neputa Matsuri, and also introduces the city’s other cultural specialties.

The Neputa Matsuri takes place annually from August 1 to 7 around the same time when Neputa and Nebuta festivals are held all over Aomori Prefecture. It features floats with large painted screens that depict beautiful women, mythological warriors and other themes, and are illuminated from within when paraded through the streets. Several such floats and screens are on display in the Neputa Mura.

Entrance fee (separate from tour price, to be purchased on the spot)
Adults: JPY550 per person

 

Option 05: Auga Fish Market

Auga Fish Market Hirosaki Cherry Blossom Private Package Tour

Auga Market is a lively fish market located in the basement of the Auga Festival City shopping center. The market consists of tightly packed rows of vendors selling all sorts of fish, seafood, vegetables and prepared foods. The local seafood is freshly brought in from Aomori Port, and you can find practically anything here from seaweed and tuna, to live octopus and Aomori’s famous scallops. There are also a few restaurants that serve seafood from the market.
