Thetraveljunkie.org – We love visiting different spots in Japan and especially those that we haven’t been to before, it always makes us think that travel changes you and how you see the world. It helps you thing big. Hirosaki Park in Aomori is home to around 2600 cherry trees comprised of 52 different species, including the massive Yoshino cherry trees, more than 100 years old and remarkably beautiful when covered in their countless blossoms. In addition to the blossoming Nishibori cherry trees whose branches hang down lazily brushing the surface of the moat and the tunel of cherry blossoms, flowers can be seen blooming in full force all thoughout the park.

Highlights abound, including the view of cherry blossoms and Mount Iwaki from the castle tower, the cherry blossoms reflecting off of the surface of the Nishibori moat, and the weeping cherry trees in the Honmaru area of the castle that ShikoMunakata christened Otakizakura, or waterfall cherry trees. Peak Bloom: Late April to early May.

If there’s one thing that we love more than traveling, it certainly has to be a new smartphone. During our trip in Tohoku, we took our Samsung Galaxy S7 with us. We already made some photos and videos about our experience for our Instagram channel but today we thought it was time to show you photos from the trip. They were all taken with the Samsung Galaxy S7. In Hirosaki Park we did not stop taking photos of the landscape, and it was great to be able to change our camera app in pro and automatic as we pleased.

I mostly left the camera app in pro and automatic and was hugely impressed by the results, especially the speed of the autofocus like a DSLR camera, blessing DualPixel technology. There is a full manual mode for those who want it, which records three seconds of video before each photo, and a mode for taking photos of flowers.

The truth is that we are not going to miss our Samsung much in our next trip. We’re already on the Samsung Galaxy S7 team!

A big thank you Japan National Tourism Organization, ANA, and my readers for following and supporting me on this journey!

And now the question is, where shall we go next?
