Matsumoto Castle

English

Depending on where you are getting your information from, Matsumoto Castle in Nagano is either the second or third most beautiful castle in Japan, and to be fair, we cannot disagree here! Located about 220km away from Tokyo it is considered to be one of Japan’s most important national treasures.
Built in the 16th century, the Matsumoto Castle is unlike many other Japanese castles, built on a plain rather than on a hill or mountain top and surrounded by a picturesque moat.

Gorgeous from the outside, Matsumoto Castle also offers a unique chance for its visitors to travel into the past by allowing them to visit each and every floor, making Matsumoto Castle such a unique experience with its many exhibitions of historical weapons and other architectural wonders.

Highly recommended all year long, Matsumoto Castle is one of these marvels of Japan that everybody needs to visit once in their lifetime!

Français

Le château de Matsumoto à Nagano est considéré comme le troisième, voire le second plus beau château du Japon, et pour être franc, nous sommes parfaitement d’accord ! Construit au cours du 16ème siècle à 220km de Tokyo, il est aussi vu comme un des plus importants trésors du patrimoine japonais. Contrairement à la plupart des châteaux japonais, le château de Matsumoto ne prend pas pieds au sommet d’une colline ou d’une montagne, mais en plaine, entouré d’un fossé.

Impressionnant de l’extérieur, le château offre la chance à ses visiteurs de voyager dans le passé en traversant chacun de ses étages qui proposent des expositions d’armes historiques et de sujets architecturaux.

Chaudement recommandé tout au long de l’année, le château de Matsumoto est une de ces merveilles du Japon que chacun doit visiter au cours de sa vie !
