Hirosaki Castle at Aomori
Cherry trees bloom later in the Tokyo area and visitors hoping to see the blossoms head for the former side of Hirosaki Castle, one of the finest viewing spots in the Northeast. Hirosaki is also known for its bright lantern-lift floats, called neputa、which are pulled solemnly down the main street in its early August festival. The Hirosaki floats are fan-shaped and their progress is announced by the thunderous beat of huge drums.
