Matsusaka Castle Ruins (松坂城跡)
Designated a National Historic Site in 2011, the Matsusaka Castle Ruins are a symbol of Matsusaka with the proud stone walls still standing. The cherry trees, wisteria, and ginkgo trees are familiar throughout the four seasons, and visitors can take in at a glance a view of the townscape which still bears the vestiges of the castle town. There are many sights to see such as the Museum of Motoori Norinaga, the Museum of History and Folklore, and the old samurai homes of Gojoban Yashiki.
