Japan Promoting Tourism With The Use Of Bitcoins

With the help of Bitcoin exchange and payment processor Coincheck, the festival and City of Hirosaki are officially accepting bitcoin donations as part of their Cherry Blossom Festival this week. "This will be the first attempt for both a Bitcoin company and a local government in Japan," Coincheck states.

Hirosaki is located in the southwestern area of Aomori Prefecture, a region with abundant nature found in Mt. Iwaki and the World Natural Heritage Shirakami Mountains. The city’s main attraction is Hirosaki Castle, one of 12 surviving castles from the Edo period.

The area around Hirosaki Castle is well known as one of the best cherry blossom flower sites in Japan. Visitors to the site in late April can marvel at over 2,600 cherry blossom trees in full bloom.

2017 marks the 100th year of Hirosaki’s famous Festival. The local government that oversees the park and festival is expecting a record turnout for the anniversary event, which has been extended to mark the occasion.
