In 1873, the Japanese government issued an order to scrap the castle and changed the castle into a park for the public to visit in 1895. After years of cultivation of cherry blossoms, it has become a popular sakura blossoms scenery.
At present, Hirosaki Castle’s moat, stone walls, and soil walls still keep the prototype of the castle. The building parts are also precious historical sites.
Hirosaki Castle is one of the twelve existing castles in Japan.
From the photos, we can see that the architectural style of the Hirosaki Castle is gradually shrinking from the bottom to the top like a tower.
I took the photo in front of the Hirosaki castle’s propaganda backplane. The original photo is just for fun. I don’t expect the effect is quite good. Can you recognize the printing background if I don’t tell you?
From the Hirosaki Castle, you can overlook the beautiful Mount Iwaki which is also called Mount Fuji of Tsugaru.
At present, the Hirosaki Castle has been judged the danger of collapse and decided to carry out a century-old overhaul. Therefore, it took three months to move the castle 70m away in 2015, so that the exposed stone wall can be repaired and is expected to return to its original position in 2021.
We can see the cautious attitude of the Japanese government on the protection of historical sites.
No wonder there are so many beautiful and precious ancient castles and temples in Japan.
Here is the video of moving the castle.
