I took a day trip to Matsumoto City, Nagano Prefecture and visited several places. In this article, I will write about Matsumoto Castle.
Matsumoto Castle is a National Treasure as the Japan’s oldest wooden castle, constructed more than 400 years ago. It is also known as the “crow castle”, because its contrasting black and white, against the shining Japanese Alps makes for splendid scenery.

Matsumoto Castle is also selected as one of the “Japan’s 31 most beautiful places” by CNN. If you are interested in it, please check its website below.
