Japan's Crow Castle Presents a Vivid Laser Mapping Display

Japan’s Matsumoto Castle, which is also known as “Crow Castle” due to its black wooden paneling, is currently holding a special nighttime lighting display, illuminating the centuries-old structure and surrounding areas in pulsating neon glows.

Crow Castle was originally built in 1594 and lies in the middle of a tranquil moat with sprawling gardens as its backdrop. The winter presentation is titled “Matsumoto Castle-Shimmering Ice Crystal Water Mirror,” and is a public art project led by Tokyo Lighting Design and Venus Laser. Neon lights are installed where the lake meets the water as well as around the surrounding greenery, and three main laser mapping light displays — Past, Present, and Future — are presented nightly in 30-minute intervals with accompanying music.

Entry to Matsumoto Castle is free of charge, and the presentation will run until February 28 between 6 to 8:30 p.m JST. A special New Year’s light display is currently showing until January 15, and event organizers are also planning for a special Valentine’s Day show between February 6 to 14.
