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.

This is a beautiful castle on a hill top.Take the ropeway to get there. Inside the castle there is are interesting displays about the history. The views from the castle are really nice too.

Better than Matsumoto and Okayama. Bit of a hike to the top but well worth it

Had a great hike up the hill and met by a glorious cherry blossom profusion at the top. The Castle has some of the best English language descriptions I have seen in Japan and is hugely atmospheric. It helps that it was a glorious spring day with everyone in a great mood. Well managed and presented. Walked down the opposite side through the shrine to the tram for Dogo. Lovely day.
