Hirosaki is one of the best places for cherry blossom viewing in Japan, and is widely known for its Neputa festival in summer.

It offers a comfortable environment for students to live in because there are many apartments, dining places and bars geared to their needs in the vicinity of the university. It is possible to go downtown in about 15-20 minutes on foot. Most students use bicycles as a primary means of transportation.
