Matsumoto Castle

SHORYUDO
Matsumoto Castle, a national treasure, is the most ancient castle in Japan with a castle tower that remains the same as it was in the sengoku period ("Warring States"). The imposing black figure of the castle against the northern Japan Alps is truly a sight to see. The area surrounding the castle can be viewed from the castle tower, and the Matsumoto Castle Park grounds show a variety of lovely changes in each season.
