Matsumoto Castle, a National Treasure
A historic castle built during the Warring States period
Matsumoto Castle, which was spared from war damage such as air raids during World War II and fires, was designated as a National Treasure in 1952. At the entrance, you can see the imposing "Kuromon" gate with a high level of formality. On the roof of the gatehouse, there are tiles with the family crest of the successive lords, so be sure to look for them.
