Matsumoto Castle, Japan

Went to Matsumoto Castle located in Nagano Prefecture on the Island of Honshu, Japan. This was quite the experience and it was spectacular to be able to see the castle both on the inside and out, but also the panoramic views of the mountains and the city that was built long after the castle. Some of the unique features about this castle is that when you first enter the castle the incline of the steps was at a low angle with many steps, but the higher you go the further apart the steps become and the fewer they are. Another interesting thing is that this castle is one of only two that has a moon room that was use to write poetry in. Also, this castle has a hidden floor that was use to store weapons and ammunition. I hope you enjoy the photos from the experience as much as I enjoyed the experience itself.
