Discover Hirosaki

The city of Hirosaki, in Aomori, is running a "Discover Hirosaki" campaign to attract tourists from Tokyo as part of a 400th anniversary celebration for the Hirosaki castle.

These posters were in the Akihabara JR station. What caught my eye were the manga/ukiyo-e-like paintings set over what's either really highly-detailed background paintings, or photos. A mix of old art styles and new.

Takamaru-kun says "come to Hirosaki or I'll eat your face."
