Additional information

Matsumoto-jo Castle, also known as Matsumoto Castle, is a historic castle located in the city of Matsumoto in Nagano Prefecture, Japan. It is one of the most famous and picturesque castles in Japan, and is designated as a National Treasure.

The castle was built during the late 16th century by the feudal lord Ishikawa Kazumasa, and has since been well-preserved through the centuries. The castle’s black and white exterior, with its unique roof design, gives it a striking appearance against the surrounding mountains.

Visitors can enter the castle and explore its five stories, which include exhibits on the history and culture of the castle and its surrounding area. The top floor of the castle offers a stunning view of the surrounding mountains and cityscape.

In addition to its historical significance, Matsumoto-jo Castle is also a popular cherry blossom viewing spot in the spring, and the castle and surrounding park are beautifully illuminated at night during certain times of the year.
