Matsumoto Castle is one of only 12 remaining original castles in Japan. Constructed in the late 16th century, it maintains its wooden interior, fascinating history buffs and castle enthusiasts alike. But from the outside, Matsumoto Castle is a sight to behold as well - especially at nighttime, when the illuminated castle is reflected in the moat, exuding a fairytale-like mystery. Bring a tripod to catch some beautiful long exposure shots.
