Notable trees around Hirosaki Castle/Интересные деревья вокруг замка Хиросаки

There are a couple of interesting trees around the Hirosaki castle. The first tree is 300 years old, is very tall (so tall, it would not fit into the picture), and has many roots. It just looked very unusual.

Вокруг замка Хиросаки есть деревья, о которых стоит упомянуть подробнее. Дереву на фотографии ниже -- 300 лет. Оно очень высокое, аж все не влезло в кадр, и у него очень большие корни. Оно выглядело очень необычно.


Here is some info about the tree, it is just all in Japanese. You can see the swastika on the very top of the information panel, and as I mentioned before, it has nothing to do with the Nazis; it is a traditional Japanese symbol and, in this case, shows that this information is provided by the administration of Hirosaki city.

Вот информация про это дерево, только все написано по-японски. Опять видно свастику вверху таблички, я уже упоминал ранее, что свастика в данном случае ничего общего не имеет с фашистами, это традиционный японский символ, а также эмблема города Хиросаки.



It turns out that there are several types of cherry trees, and their blossoming times vary slightly. This particular cherry tree is the oldest in Japan.

Оказывается есть несколько разновидностей вишневых деревьев, и не все они цветут в одно и то же время. Дерево на картинке внизу -- старейшее вишневое дерево этой разновидности во всей Японии.

 And this is the apple tree that produces Fuji apples.

А вот на таком дереве растут яблоки сорта Фуджи.
