  • Had long planned previously, but does not provide. Put the castle on the Japan Sea side is no place why facing the Tsugaru Strait, off? Unknown could run the vast ezo is better in this little castle.

  • In Matsumae town sights attracts many tourists during the spring cherry blossom season. Absolutely no tourists visited in the winter season, I took a walk and laid-back. Cherry Blossom 7-8 wheel bloomed quietly.

  • Japan 100 visits in meijo. Learn about the history of harmony and the castle itself is simple and austere appearance, the castle itself has become a Museum, during the Edo period the entrance of ezo in indigenous Ainu people (sometimes they fight). Statue of incendiary column of opinions is great.

  • One of the 100 famous castles. Despite the long way through bus, it was worth the time. It will be beautiful during sakura seasons.
  • My first visit to a Japanese castle and was worth seeing. Would like to see it during the Cherry blossom season.
  • This is a great castle!
  • I didn't go inside the palace, but the surrounding park is very beautiful indeed. I went there on a Monday evening and had the whole park to myself. Lots of tables and benches -- a fantastic location for a picnic.
  • I think we went in the wrong season because it was depressing and nothing charming about the visit.
