LOVE THIS PLACE !
Went to Hirosaki City for a business trip and my boss suggested I try out a home-stay, was so happy I did.
Flower Garden Mimi is a place where you can relax, learn, and explore.
Mama, as she likes to be called, picked me up at Hirosaki station around 8pm. As soon as we got to her house she gave me a quick tour and we sat down and talked about life for about 2-3 hours. It was so much fun that the time flew by so fast.
Mama really enjoys meeting international people and it shows through her hospitality and her love to serve anyone that comes to her house.
The house was clean but still had a family feel to it. You can see Aomori's beloved Mt.Iwaki overlooking the apple orchards from the house. You can also take a stroll in Mama's garden which is filled with different flowers as she has her own flower shop.
I will definitely be staying here on my next trips to Aomori.
I also recommend you get the breakfast option, it was a healthy homemade breakfast that is cheaper and 10X better than anything you can eat at a restaurant.
The room has been recently re-modeled and looks fantastic.
Can't wait to see you soon !
