The best part of autumn in Japan is the beautiful autumn foliage. All across Japan, the castles are decorated with trees bearing colorful red and yellow leaves. This creates a beautiful sight at Matsumoto Castle with its contrasting black and white structure, enjoy Japan autumn this October 🍂🚗👉 http://bit.ly/2RMiftc
The Takeda Castle, constructed on the mountain at 353 meters of altitude, is one of the hundred famous castles in Japan.
In autumn early on the morning, fog can be seen when the sky is clear. The view is such that the castle can be seen surrounded by a sea of clouds, thus resembling a castle floating in the sky.
As time goes by, visitors have given the names of “castle floating in the sky” or “Japan’s Machu Picchu” to the ruins of Takeda Castle.

Matsumoto Castle—a National Treasure
Matsumoto Castle, whose contrast of black and white is strikingly beautiful, is one of five National Treasure castles as well as one of the country’s top 100 castles.
The view of the castle at night, floating amid the darkness of the sky and watery moat, is altogether different than its appearance during the day and definitely worth a look.
