- (since ONLY the outer most wall survived the WW2, i also post up the photo of the Date Masamune Kibazou statue in this photset; since the main castle supposed to be located on where the statue stands now)

 

i’ve visited 3 out of 4 castles that listed under the National Treasure of Japan, with Himeji castle the only one left….. & as much as i’m a bias in LOVING Sendai’s (considering i’ve visited it at least 6x already lulz), i actually think Matsumoto castle is 1 of the BEST castle that i’ve ever visited!!

well, the Himeji castle also look VERY grand!!! (try google it!), but since it has been under restoration work since few years ago & scheduled to be finish by year 2015; thats why i havent visit there yet…. but i’m so WILL once its finish!!

Matsumoto (& Himeji) castle = MUST VISIT!!

they’re are simply so grand, beautiful & evil looking sexy castles that will kick other castles’ assess while looking down on how puny the others are!!! (no joking!! thats the impression i got after visiting Matsumoto caste! lolz)
