Matsuyama Jo is beautiful. The castle itself is kept very wells obtained even despite a fire a few century's ago.
To get to the castle we took the rope way going up and the single seat rope way coming back. Wonderful view ofthe city. Ofcourse we were there on the summer and it was fiercely hot. We stopped by the rope way top and had a lovely lunch them made our way up to the castle.
In the castle you have to climb very steep stairs which wasn't a problem for me but was difficult for my mother
It as such a wonderful day spent up there. We didn't dothe gardens but we did do the walk up to the castle.
Well worth it and very cheap.
