This is a town well-known for its 400 year old castle. The town is surrounded by mountains. A JR express train from Tokyo to Matsumoto is about 2hrs 50min. From Matsumoto, we travelled to Hakuba, Japan Alps, by JR train. Duration is about 2 hours.
A bus ride from the bus terminal to the castle is about 10mins. Cost 150yen per ride.
- Pros:Quiet town with beautiful mountain views
- Cons:Shopping experience is not as interesting as Tokyo
- In a nutshell:A mountaineous town base to Japan Alps
This restaurant is recommended by one of the locals in Matsumoto. The waiter speaks no English but they have English... more travel advice
