SpotMatsue Castle

Built in 1611, the main keep of Matsue Castle is the only original castle tower still remaining intact in the Tottori and Shimane area. The Shiomi-nawate samurai quarters along the moat on the north side of the castle, where midlevel warriors lived during the Edo period (1603-1867), preserves the mood of the old castle town. The Shiomi residences have been kept unchanged for about 260 years and are well worth seeing. Furniture and daily utensils including sword drawers are on display, and such items remind us of the simple and sturdy spirits of the warriors.
