Matsumoto castle keep /5

Matsumoto castle dates from the C16 and is listed as a National Treasure of Japan. The keep (tenshukaku), which was completed in the late sixteenth century, maintains its original wooden interiors and external stonework. During the Edo period the stronghold was also known as Crow Castle (烏城 Karasu-jo) because its black walls and roofs looked like spreading wings.
