Matsuyama Castle is one of Japan’s few castles with original surviving keeps or main towers. Its 21 buildings are listed as Important Cultural Properties, and the castle is regarded as one of the three best “Renritsu-shiki Hirayama-jiro” (Renritsu-shiki: an architectural style where the top castle tower is in the centre with smaller towers on either side; Hirayama-jiro: a castle built on a hill on a plain). The towers are all connected to defend the main castle building. The castle is a well-known symbol of Matsuyama mentioned in many books and movies. It has been and will be guarding the city of Matsuyama for centuries!
