Matsumae Castle is a castle located in Matsumae in Hokkaido, Japan, and is the northernmost castle in Japan. It was the home of the Matsumae Han of the Matsumae clan. It is perhaps the only traditional style Edo period castle in Hokkaidō.HistoryBuilt in 1606 by Matsumae Yoshihiro, it burned down in 1637 but was rebuilt in 1639. Later, modern defences were built on the site in 1850. The donjon of Matsumae Castle was 30m high. In 1875, the administrative building, three turrets, and an artillery position were torn down, before the remaining donjon and main gate burned down in 1949; it is now all a park.It once controlled all passengers through Hokkaidō to the rest of Japan.See Matsumae Castle and all Matsumae-cho has to offer by arranging your trip with our Matsumae-cho trip itinerary builder.

일본의 성입니다. 북해도 , 즉 홋카이도의 성은 또 일본 중남부 지역의 성들과는 건축양식이랄까? 약간 그런 건물의 디자인이 아주 약간은 다르다고 느꼈어요. 같은 나라, 다른 지역의 색다른 저마다의 양식들이 새삼 신선합니다. 조금더 층간의 높이가 높아서 이 지역의 기후가 반영되지않았나 싶었어요. 옆에 넓은 공원과 같이 한번에 둘러보기 좋습니다.Japan's Castle. The people of Hokkaido, Northern Japan, in other words, even if the South-Central region, and the cities and construction form another disagreement? The design of such buildings is very little different from "some felt the. For something different, a different form of the same country, each in the region are once again fresh.

We were about an hour early for opening, but were let in anyway. Really happy about that, and the castle was great too.
函館からの定期観光バスを利用して訪問。天守閣はコンパクトだが、松前藩の歴史はとても興味深い。函館よりも先に栄えたのに、今はひっそりとしているところが良い。By using the regular tourist bus from Hakodate, visited. Castle's compact, but very interesting history of the Matsumae clan. Better so far than the Hakodate flourished ago, but now I have tucked away.show original
Worth the trip to see the Sakura blooms, but its also nice in the winter and without the crowds to boot!
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 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.
Chocolate parfaitAbout around the Castle isn't even that much. Here you will want to visit GW cherry came for! In size and budget, from the parking lot round boobs and can explore the lamplight. Some places unusual blooms of Taraxacum albidum in Hokkaido. At the end leaving little but entered the mountain by car has another view point.show original
