Hirosaki Castle- Fall Season

Hirosaki Castle


Hirosaki Castle, Nov 7, 2009- Last Saturday we visited the Hirosaki Castle Park to see the glorious beauty of fall foliage and the chrysanthemum festival they have. It was a lovely day even we had snow last Nov. 3, the warm weather came back after 2 days. Hirosaki is a 2 to 2 1/2 hour drive from Misawa Air Base. Hirosaki Castle is very popular during Sakura or Cherry Blossom Festival.

For me, there are only two things that are very positive when the word 'fall' is used. 'Falling in love' and the 'fall season'.

I don't know, but withered, falling leaves really look beautiful and lovely! o",)

We're pretty much on the same latitude - I love autumn!

RJ- yes, you are correct falling in love and fall season, what a nice one doc Rj. I've just started to appreciate the fall season here because of the fall colors.

Nomadic- yes we're on the same latitude and pretty much the same weather huh? ;-)

The photo you took of the Hirosaki Castle reminded me of the Osaka Castle I visited eons ago. Maybe my memory is so fogged up with years gone by I'm starting to hallucinate LOL.

bert- actually the Japanese castles look similar, when we went inside the Hirosaki castle which is the museum I saw some pictures of different castles from different places in Japan and they look the same, I can't identify which one is the Hirosaki one hehehe
