Built in 1611, Matsue Castle is Japan's latest and fifth castle whose main tower tower has been designated as a National Treasure (on July 8, 2015). Amid a complex of moats, stone walls, and reconstructed turrets, the main castle tower largely retains its original 17th-century construction and stands five stories high. One of the San'in Region's major sights and one of the best castles along the Sea of Japan coast. Easily accessible by a short bus ride from JR Matsue Station. (This album shows over 250 photos of the castle.)
