First Sights of Aomori 青森の最初に見た景色

I am BACK IN JAPAN!!! I’ve been here now for about 3 weeks. And it’s been so great so far! Never been happier! No snow yet, but I’m sure there will be plenty of that soon enough! I thought I would just share some of my first sights of Hirosaki with you.


Landing in Haneda Airport! Of course, this isn’t Hirosaki yet, but nothing makes me feel like I’m back in Japan than those first sights out the window and inside the airport. It’s only been a year, and yet it felt like it had been quite a while!


The closest store to my apartment is arguably the best / worst named store I’ve ever seen! Happy Drug! Not sure what they put in their medicine, heh heh… Actually, it’s where I buy my milk. Maybe that’s the REAL reason I’ve never been happier! ; )


One of the biggest attractions in Hirosaki is Hirosaki Castle! It is a beautiful park, and supposedly Hirosaki has the most beautiful cherry blossoms in Japan, and honestly, they’re pretty nice to look at and walk through even when it’s not Spring.


Oh, and here’s Hirosaki’s mascot. Japanese city mascots try to embody all of the city’s main attractions and be cute at the same time : )
