Matsuyama Castle was first built by Kato Yoshiakira from 1602 to 1627. The castle is one of twelve Japanese castles that still stand today, although it burned down twice, once in 1642 and again in 1784 after being struck by lightning. The present structures date from 1854.

The impressive three-storey central keep is listed as an Important Cultural Property and features displays of samurai swords, old palanquins and the armour of the former feudal lords (daimyo) of Matsudaira. The castle also has impressive gates and defensive turrets, which are also designated as Important Cultural Properties.
