"Most people begin their hikes..." Matsumoto Off The Beaten Path Tip by asantetravel

Matsumoto Off The Beaten Path: 3 reviews and 6 photos

Most people begin their hikes from Matusmoto and miss out on Hotaka. Rent a bike (300\/hr), then spend the day riding through wasabi fields surrounded by mountains. There are also many painted jizo to see. Don?t forget to have a taste of some wasabi soft ice cream ? it definitely has kick! Hotaka is a 30 minute train ride from Matsumoto. To the left of the station is a tourist info center ? they have Enlgish maps.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
