"APPLES!!!" Hirosaki Things to Do Tip by kat_on_moray

Hirosaki Things to Do: 5 reviews and 9 photos


When in Rome do as the Romans do and EAT APPLES! Hirosaki is famous for its delicious apples and they will not disappoint. Apples from Hirosaki are literally the largest apples I have ever seen - enough for a whole meal. When cut open, they often have what is called mitsu in the middle ( a sweet area) and it is tastes so good. Nashi are also recommended. Do not limit yourself only to fresh apples, try out the famous apple juice as well! You might even want to try and pick some for yourself!
