[Main Part]

Hirosaki Park is well known as one of the most beautiful cherry blossom spots in Japan. This year cherry blossoms flowered earlier than average, so when I arrived at the park, cherry blossoms passed the peak time and started to fall. However, I enjoyed viewing them.Hirosaki Park cherry blossoms photo1

[Closing]

To be honest, I expected cherry blossoms in full bloom, so I was not satisfied in that context. Through this trip, however, I realized fallen cherry blossoms are also attractive. In addition to daytime exhibition, there is night illumination in Hirosaki Park and I will write about it in the next article.
