Cerisiers en Fleurs à Hirosaki

Rendez-vous à l'aube dans l'un des plus beaux sites du Japon

Par Josef Diermair   

La ville d'Hirosaki, située dans la préfecture d'Aomori, est célèbre et célébrée pour ses cerisiers en fleurs.

Au printemps, un festival se déroule justement dans le parc attenant au château de la ville. Et ce parc est vraiment gigantesque... Le pic de floraison tombe pile pendant la Golden Week, une période de congés nationaux au Japon (fin avril - début mai). Attendez-vous donc à jouer des coudes, il y aura beaucoup de monde. Si vous arrivez sur place tôt le matin, par exemple vers 5h (c'est l'heure à laquelle j'y étais), vous devriez pouvoir profiter du spectacle en toute quiétude. En plus, c'est au lever du soleil que la lumière et les couleurs des cerisiers sont les plus belles!

Born in France, I was twenty years old when, passing by a local bookstore, a book about Japanese characters caught my attention. This was my first encounter with Japan, and one that would change my life in many ways. Earning a degree in Japanese Studies with a major in Japanese religions and folklore, I have studied for two years in Kyoto but it only took me a couple of weeks to fall in love with the city. I really feel privileged to have been able to meet so many wonderful people out there, that taught me a lot about Japanese culture and about myself. I love nature, visiting temples and shrines, reading and researching about their history, joining traditional festivals or riding my bike to discover hidden places throughout the city. I also enjoy taking pictures wherever I go and Japan is a never-ending source of inspiration for an amateur like me. With Osaka, Kobe, Nara and many other beautiful rural areas at a short train ride distance from Kyoto, Kansai is also a wonderful area for enjoying the richness of Japanese cuisine. Japan has many secrets for everyone to discover, and countless elusive moments of poetry that no guidebook can tell you about. I am delighted to be able to share the ones I had the chance to witness with you and everyone at Japantourist. I sincerely hope it will make you want to visit and discover this magnificent country.
