The Matsumoto casle embraced by cherry-blossoms

Matsumoto is a relatively small town by Japanese standard (pop: 200.000)located in Nagano Prefecture (center of Japanese largest island-Honshu).

I choose to stay in this city because : it is a beautiful and peaceful city with traditional architecture and a castle: people are known very welcoming and hospitable; surrounded by the Alps and many hot-spring spots.

Its a lovely city with traditional Japanese restaurants and cafes. You can reach any famous sight-seeing spots on foot within 10-15 minutes.

The city is surrounded by the Japan Alps and there are many ski resorts not far away. Nagano is the capital of Nagano Prefecture where the winter Olympic was held several decades ago.
