Hirosaki Apple Park in the outskirt of Hirosaki City, Aomori Prefecture is half public park and half apple orchard. They grow a multitude of apple varieties that can be harvested in the fall season. Come anytime between August and November, and the local staff will guide you to the most prime apple variety at that time!
The annual harvest festival at Hirosaki Apple Park takes place in late September. There are a wide variety of food stands and stage performances to compliment the hottest apple-picking season. You can try baking a "bo-pan", or stick bread, which is popular at barbecues in Japan. You can also watch them bake a giant 2m diameter apple pie! Wash it down with a tasting of 5 apple juices and vote for your favorite. Finish the afternoon with an awesome performance by the adorable Ringo Musume, the local 4-person idol group!
