Matsuyama Castle is a hilltop style Japanese Castle, on Mt Matsuyama in the city of Matsuyama, Ehime Prefecture. Matsuyama Castle was completed in 1603 with a five story donjon (keep) which was relocated from Aizu Castle. In 1642 Matsudaira Sadayuki completed a new donjon, which was later destroyed by a lightning strike and fire in 1784. Between 1820 and 1854 the current donjon was completed. Parts of the castle were destroyed during World War II and restoration work started in 1966. Matsuyama Castle is a different castle to the similarly named Bitchu Matsuyama Castle.
