E-book Matsumoto Castle

Nicknamed “Crow Castle”, Matsumoto resembles black bird ready to fly. It is one of the most beautiful castles in Japan and one of only twelve castle with extant main keep. In 1952 it was designated National Treasure of Japan. Now there are only five castles with such high status. In this book one can find the history of the castle creation and would be able to learn about its distinctive architecture. The book is rich illustrated by photos mainly shot by the author. Recommended for those interested in Japanese history, culture and architecture.
