May Blooms at Matsumoto Castle

While the castle during cherry blossom season seems to receive the most attention, there are many other kinds of seasonal flowers and foliage to enjoy here year-round.

Not to be outdone by the cherry blossoms, the reds and pinks of the roses in full bloom before the castle create a beautiful sight.

Even the pine trees add a touch of purple to the scene with their budding cones.

Lastly, the hot pink hues of the azaleas add a vibrant spirit to the confetti of color that will bring in the early summer! Later on, keep an eye out for the gorgeous lotus blossoms that bloom at the pond near the castle. Enjoy 🙂
