A castle town, Matsumoto possesses one of the best-preserved feudal structures in the country, and maintains its historical attractions and traditions while simultaneously exuding a modern, cosmopolitan charm.
Explore Matsumoto's surroundings by going to Zenko-ji Temple (in Nagano) and Hakuba Happoone Ski Resort (in Hakuba-mura). And it doesn't end there: go for a walk through Matsumoto Castle, steep yourself in history at Kaichi Gakko Primary School, indulge in Japan's hot spring tradition at some of the top local onsens, and take in the views from Kappa Bashi.
