Take Flight to Matsuyama Castle

by Mieke - TripleLights travel specialist

One thing that makes Matsuyama Castle so special, is that it is located on
a hilltop and is only accessible by a ropeway with chairlifts or closed capsules
(indispensable for winter!) or on foot. Also, you can access the historical garden in
the middle fortress (ninomaru). Around late March to early April, the 200 cherry trees on
the complex are in full bloom, making this an excellent cherry blossom-viewing spot.
Access to the garden costs an additional 100 yen. Sometimes, events are held such as
night plays of Japanese traditional ‘Noh’ theatre.

“ Historical View of Matsuyama ”

Very Good
1 month ago Traveler: Simon -   Tour Guide: Kaz

We had a great guided tour given by Kaz in Matsuyama. He had a challenge of making the tour interesting for teenagers all the way up to a 79 year old!.. He met the challenge with great enthusiasm, and as a result we saw parts of Matsuyama that we would not have seen on our own, I believe not even some locals know what we experienced. Thanks Kaz!
