A giant ukiyo-e replica made of some 30,000 apples is being displayed at a castle in Hirosaki, Aomori Prefecture, to promote the nation’s top Apple-producing city.

Using five different colors of apples, the fruity replica of a famous woodblock print by ukiyo-e master Toshusai Sharaku was created by residents to fit in a case measuring 17 meters by 9 meters for the Hirosaki Castle Chrysanthemum and Autumn Foliage Festival.
