Things To Do

Matsumoto Castle has a very active castle site. Every summer
there are performances of Taiko Drummers and Takigi Noh (a play performed
under torch light) festivals are held. The castle gardens are painted bright pink in
April, when the cherry blossoms are in full bloom. In autumn, you can watch the moon
and ponder existence during a so-called Moon Viewing Party. This takes place in the
'moon viewing room' of the castle, built especially for that purpose. It is said that
"the moon can be seen three times from the moon viewing room". Once in the sky,
once reflected in the water of the moat below and once in your cup of sake (but six
if you’ve had one too many cups). Also, English speaking volunteer guides roam around
the compound, willing to explain about the castle’s history to any visitor.

Hello! My name is Keiichi. Please call me Kei. I was born and raised in Joetsu City, located in the southern part of Niigata prefecture. Joetsu was the former capital city of Echigo Province until the mid 19th century. It has a lot of historic sites and scenic spots, and most of all good people. I love my city very much. I worked for the Joetsu City office for over thirty years. During my time there, I was in charge of international relations for about ten years. After retiring from the office, I began working as a licensed tour guide. I am very excited to introduce my city to people all over the world.
