Hirosaki Kickstart Travel Map
Hirosaki is a small yet wonderful city that has a lot to offer. Visiting the city for cherry blossom is one thing for sure but there’s a lot more to this city. I wish I could stay a little bit longer because it took me a fair bit of time to find good places and didn’t get the chance to visit them all after finding them. I feel like I wasted time going around the city not knowing exactly where to go and just playing it by ear. I think I could’ve spent my time there a lot more wisely and efficiently if I’d done some research beforehand. (I decided last minutes go to Hirosaki)
Is this map for me?
In general, it’s good to have choices but sometimes there are just too many of them to choose from and that makes it difficult to decide on where to go. I’m sharing the places where I thought I would recommend to my friends and also those I found by chance and wanted to go if I had more time. While this map is not a complete guide book for visiting Hirosaki, it will save your time and help you kickstart your plan by showing the basic information too, so you won’t have to start from the very beginning. The map contains not only their locations but also their websites where possible so you can access the latest information (opening hours etc)
How does it work?
You have two options to have the map on your smartphone.
- Directly access the map
- Download the KMZ data and import it
You will find a URL link to the map right after purchase (it’s also included in the download file too just in case). The map is set to private and you’ll need a google account (free) to join YorozuyaMap group beforehand to view the map as only group members have access to the map. Please rest assured that none of the group members can see you nor contact you. This group is for having access to the maps only and nothing else. The map is just a few taps away if you don’t ming joining the group. This group also works for other maps offered here at Yorozuya.tech.
What if I don’t want to become a member ?
I understand that you are worried about your privacy. This is what KMZ file is for. You can download the KMZ file after purchase and import it to your google account. (There’s a download button on the purchase confirmation page) This will let you install the map to your account as well. There’s a pro and con for this option. The pro is that you can edit and customise the map by adding the spots that you want to visit. The con is that there will be more steps to go through. Once you download the file, you will need to log in to your google MyMap account through the browser (No Google Map App for iPhone users) and upload the file. The name of the map will become ‘untitled’ and you will need to make one for yourself.
