Matsumoto Castle

The “crow castle”, nicknamed for it’s black colour is regarded as one of the best castles in Japan, and was a very big part of the reason we travelled to Matsumoto.  Around 500 years old and only narrowly saved from demolition in the late 1800s by the residents of Matsumoto, it’s now a big drawcard for the area.
