Matsumoto-jō (Matsumoto Castle)

Matsumoto-jō is Japan's oldest castle and one of four castles designated National Treasures. If you come to Tokyo, Matsumoto is relatively easy to approach by train.

It takes just 10 minutes from Matsumoto Station by Brompton.

If you visit the castle in winter, you can have this view early in the morning.

It is common among Japanese that tasty spring water comes out everywhere in Matsumoto.
