We arrived in the city of Matsumoto, which is overlooked by the Japanese Alps. The main attraction of the city is the famous castle at it's centre. We spent the first day riding around on bikes getting to know the city and went on a guided tour of the castle! We learnt all about it's history, despite it's rich history - it has never been in a battle and has never been lived in! It was amazing to see though! It was designed to withstand rifle fire and swords. Quick quiz question - look at the picture - how many floors does the castle have?
