Beautiful Matsumoto Castle

Matsumoto Castle in Nagano Prefecture is one of the most attractive in Japan. It’s one of the few castles in Japan that is not a reconstruction and can be combined with a trip to the wonderfully historic Nakasendo.

    I went to this same place a few weeks back actually- took almost the same photo of the castle as you! We visited on the way back from hiking and camping in Kamikochi, in the mountains. Cold.
