Ishiba is the only decent ryokan within Hirosaki itself, but luckily it's also excellent value. Set inside a late-19th-century property a block from the castle, the bright, large tatami rooms have attractive floor mats and drapes and face onto a tree-filled garden. Meals and rental bicycles are available.
