Photos: Hirosaki Castle in Aomori Prefecture

If you want to admire the cherry blossoms to your heart's content in a Japanese castle, I recommend Hirosaki Castle in Hirosaki City, Aomori Prefecture. This castle is not very big. If you only want to visit the castle, I'd recommend Himeji Castle or Matsumoto Castle. However, on a mild spring day, seeing the incredible number of cherry blossom petals falling on Hirosaki Castle will be one of the best memories you will ever have. Hirosaki Castle is covered in snow in the winter. It's another great time of year to visit!

Photos: Oirase Stream in Aomori Prefecture

If someone asks me which is the most beautiful mountain stream in Japan, I would probably mention Oirase Stream in Aomori Prefecture in the northern part of Honshu. Oirase Stream is a mountain stream flowing out of Lake Towada. Along this stream, there is a walking path about 14 kilometers. When you are strolling here, you will surely be amazed by the beautiful clear stream and the surrounding scenery. The world of Oirase Stream changes very beautifully with the changing seasons of spring, summer, autumn, and winter.

Hakkoda Mountains (Aomori Prefecture) is one of the most snowy areas in the world. In 1902, there was an incident in which 199 of the 210 soldiers in the Japanese Army Corps were frozen to death. Currently, there is a ski resort here. You can experience heavy snowfall, especially in January-February. There are also hot springs such as Sukayu. However, please collect information and take measures against cold in advance.

Aomori prefecture is located in the northernmost part of Honshu in Japan. This area is very cold and snow is rich except for the Pacific side. Still, Aomori attracts tourists. That is because there are many tourist attractions such as Hirosaki Castle and Oirase Stream, which are representative of Japan. The Nebuta Festival to be held in August is also amazing!
