Great place to visit! The castle itself might not be so amazing, but the place around looks beautiful and it got great views. I went the on May 5th 2023 with some friends. The cherry blossoms still had lots of flowers.

2 big gates, the main keep (honmaru) and a little keep are all that is left of the castle. The keep was recently moved from the fortifications wall to the centre of the place after an earthquake threatened its stability. Great place for pictures. Limited historical artefacts.

During the autumn leave festival it is best to go at night. However, I would say don’t pay for botanical gardens and just walk around the free sections. They were better imo. The castle is pretty small but at night you don’t pay for ticket so was nice.

Super mini castle and yet this is the smallest castle i ever see, cute and move able. Of course this is about the most famous place to visit during Sakura Season.

Great little castle park with a nice botanical gardens. Tickets are cheap and right now there is an autumn garden show happening. Definitely a must-see attraction in Hirosaki.
