Matsumoto Castle in 4K

One of Japan's most famous castles

By Gonzague Gay-Bouchery    - 1 min read

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, I cannot disagree here. Built in the 16th century, 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.

A true contemplative experience. TokyoStreetView comes from this huge passion that some of us have for Japan in order to offer people around the world the chance to enjoy a bias-free experience of Japan and its many wonders. Unlike other videos you may find on Japan, TokyoStreetView videos are purely contemplative where our camera(s) are your eyes, our tripod your chair. Just sit with us, relax and let an amazing world unfold in front of you in a succession of short ~10 seconds sequences of RAW videos of Japan. We hope our passion for this mesmerizing country will touch your heart though our videos like it did for us the first day we set foot on this beautiful archipelago that is Japan
