Cherry Blossoms of Hirosaki

These are some pics taken at Hirosaki Park one morning around 8:00 AM.

The cherry blossoms on both sides of Hirosaki Castle's mote.
I'm sure a million pictures are taken from this spot every year by tourists and photographers.

I thought this tree was interesting looking.
We left Itayanagi around 7:30 in the morning and bought breakfast on the way to Hirosaki. At the castle park, we found a nice spot around cherry blossoms and ate crackers with cheese and fruit. We were the only people having a picnic early in the morning at the park, so some people walking by might have thought that we were strange, but we didn't mind. We had a nice time. After eating, we took a walk through the park.
Since we were so early in the morning, there were hardly any people. If we came a little later in the day or at night, this place would have been packed with people. Coming early made our walk easier.
The hidden castle that actually only is a watchtower.
Naomi and I doing the undefined back-peace-sign(I don't know what it means. Maybe nothing. Any ideas?) in front of Hirosaki Castle(弘前城).
Near the end of our walk we stooped by some swings in the park. My Mom took this pictures of me jumping of the swing. This day was the only time my family went to Hirosaki's Cherry Blossom Festival this year. The flowers were in full bloom and there was only a few people so it was very enjoyable.
