Matsue Castle (松江城, Matsuejō) is the centerpiece of Matsue’s well-preserved castle town. Completed in 1611, Matsue Castle is one of only 12 original castles remaining in Japan—and one of just five officially designated a National Treasure. Built to withstand war and sieges, the castle survived unscathed and remains remarkably well preserved in the modern day.
