There is a lot of walking involved on this tour. Matsumoto Castle is one of the four castles designated as a National Treasure of Japan and one of only 12 original castles remaining in Japan. Construction began on this 98-foot tower in 1592 during the Sengoku period. Nicknamed the “Crow Castle,” as you climb each level you can view armor and weapons from that time period. One of Japan’s recognizable wasabi farms is Daio Wasabi Farm located in Azumino. As one of the largest wasabi farms, you’ll be able to get a detailed look at how this peculiar herb is cultivated.
