Matsumoto Tours

Matsumoto Tours

Matsumoto is a castle town in Nagano Prefecture, home to the world-famous Matsumoto “Black Crow” Castle, one of Japan’s 12 original castles.

Matsumoto is the second largest city in Nagano prefecture, situated near the entrance to the Japanese Alps. Magnificently poised at the center of the city is Matsumoto Castle, one of Japan’s foremost ancient fortresses. The castle is unique in that it was built on a flat plain instead of a hill or mountain. The original keep has been standing since the early 1500s, and has survived intact ever since. The walls paneled in black wood and graceful wing-like slope of the roofs has given Matsumoto Castle the nickname “Black Crow Castle”. Next is Nakamichi-dori, a vintage street of the city center featuring old, well-preserved Edo-period buildings. These buildings include traditional merchants’ houses, restaurants, and ryokan. Running alongside this thoroughfare is Frog Street, lined with a row of shops and cafes in old-fashioned buildings leading up to Yohashira Shrine. Locals often stop at shops on this street to buy various goods before going home. The street’s name is a pun on the similar sounding Japanese words for buying, returning home, and frog. The entrance to the street is protected by a frog statue.
