    Hirosaki City's ``Apple Curved Mirror'' posted on X by Zenrin (Kitakyushu City) is currently attracting attention.

    "Apple Curved Mirror" is an apple-shaped road reflecting mirror that was installed in conjunction with the opening of "Hirosaki City Apple Park" (hereinafter referred to as "Apple Park"), which was developed by Hirosaki City in 2001 (Heisei 13). In Hirosaki City, in addition to the area around Ringo Park, there are also locations near the Hirosaki Civic Gymnasium.

    A person in charge of the company X, who eats apples every morning when they are in season, said, ``The photo was taken on February 11th of this year.We really wanted to introduce the ``apple-loving feeling'' that perfectly matches the shape of the apple and the circle and color of the curved mirror. "I would be happy if people saw my post and decided to go to Hirosaki."

    ``Among the many reactions that said it was cute and wonderful, what left an impression on me was the voices of gratitude from local people.I was happy to hear that some people were happy and said thank you for introducing me.''
