The Real Thing
Created by Japanese designers Yoshinaka and STpers, comissioned by Canon website, here is a beautiful paper model version of the Matsuyama Castle, in Japan. Matsuyama Castle is a flatland-mountain castle that was built in 1603 on Mount Katsuyama, whose height is 132 meters, in Matsuyama city in Ehime Prefecture. This castle was originally built by Kato Yoshiaki in 1603. It had a large five-story tenshu, or keep, which was moved to Aizu Castle when Kato was transferred there in 1627. The next lord, Tadachika Gamoh, died in 1635, shortly after completing the ninomaru. After Tadachika, Matsudaira Sadayuki became the new lord. He completed a new Castle Tower (tenshu) in 1642. His heirs continued to rule the castle after his death. However, on New Years Day, 1784, this Castle Tower (tenshu) was struck by lightning and burned down. The current Castle Tower (tenshu) was built between 1820 and 1854. The castle survived the Meiji restoration, but parts of it were destroyed by bombing from American forces during World War II. Since 1966, the city of Matsuyama has been working to restore the castle.

Criada pelos designers japoneses Yoshinaka e STpers para o site da Canon, eis aqui uma bela versão em papel do Castelo de Matsuyama, no Japão. O Castelo de Matsuyama, também conhecido por Castelo de Katsuyama e Castelo Kinki, é um castelo construído no Monte Katsuyama com vista para a área central da cidade de Matsuyama. Foi construído em 1603 por Kato Ashiaki. Devido ao grande número de portões, cercas, paredes de pedra escarpada e vales, é comummente considerado um excelente castelo tanto do ponto de vista ofensivo como defensivo.
