  • 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.

  •   Is a small, rather than "cute" Castle. Narrow uphill 3-over me, and at the entrance of the Castle exhibits is located inside the Castle, Matsumae town and sea views from the top floor.

  • Lit up at night, very clean. Visit buddies keep getting so close to a night is recommended. Dressed as warriors during the day and turn around the castle is double the fun. It was our foreign friends, rejoice. The town shrine and grave, attractions, such as trees have been planted since ancient times plenty of. To be honest there was spectacular. Leave the Matsumae Castle just is nonsense.

  • One of the 100 famous castles. Despite the long long way through bus, it was worth the time. It will be beautiful during sakura seasons.
  • I think we went in the wrong season because it was depressing and nothing charming about the visit.
  • 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.
  • Worth the trip to see the Sakura blooms, but its also nice in the winter and without the crowds to boot!
  • Have a good view
