Rambling Narrative of Travels, Thoughts, and Embellishments

Cherry Blossom Festival at a Japanese Castle – Matsumoto Castle

For one week at Matsumoto Castle around the blooming time of the sakura (cherry blossoms) they open the castle grounds up from 6 to 9 for free to the public. From the tsukimi yagura or moon-viewing tower, musicians play while visitors stroll around. The first set is the traditional Japanese harp – the koto. The second set is western-style flute and the third set is traditional gagaku which is played at shrines and Imperial functions. All is free and open to the public.
