Hirosaki Castle Chrysanthemum and Autumn Foliage Festival Information

2020 Hirosaki Castle Chrysanthemum and Autumn Foliage Festival

Lighting Up the Future.

Started in 1962, HIROSAKI CASTLE CHRYSANTHEMUM AND AUTUMN FOLIAGE FESTIVAL is an annual event that symbolizes the autumn of Hirosaki City, Aomori Pref.
On October 19, 2020, four days before the Festival, the annual event was cancelled on account of the rapid spread of Covid-19. It was the third cancellation, after the spring cherry festival and the summer Nebuta festival, out of the four festivals of Hirosaki.
The HIROSAKI CASTLE CHRYSANTHEMUM AND AUTUMN FOLIAGE FESTIVAL was meant to welcome the arrival of the season under the theme of “Lighting Up the Future.” It was to introduce the city’s history and traditions, and show the way to a brighter future.

People Connected with Each Other under the Flowers

Although the festival was cancelled, the autumn of Hirosaki in 2020 saw the red and gold leaves and flowers in Hirosaki Park, and people involved in the event’s making with new challenges for the future.

We send this video message to cheer you up, hoping that the greeting from Hirosaki reaches as many people as possible.
