Day #1710 Title: Matsumoto Castle
Location: Matsumoto, Japan
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 10-22mm EF-S f/3.5-4.5 USM
Notes: After a very early start to attend a Buddhist ceremony at the Zenkō-ji temple just after first light this morning, we enjoyed a Monk’s breakfast at our lodgings then packed our bags once more to move on. Our first stop was Yudanaka Onsen to visit the Snow Monkeys (Japanese Macaques) which bathe in the hot spring pools. Lunch was taken in the charming little town of Obuse before getting the train to Matsumoto. The afternoon was free for us to wander, and I set off for the foreboding Castle for a look around. The inside was pretty dark and menacing, but I arrived at this classic viewpoint of the outside just as the sun was bathing it in some golden light. Read more about my day.
