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.
Get outdoors at Mt. Tateyama and Daiganbo. Get some cultural insight at Matsumoto Castle and Togariishi Jomon Archaeological Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to Suwa (Taizi Harada Art Museum & Kitazawa Museum of Art), Oyama Shrine (in Tateyama-machi) and Pond Shirakoma (in Sakuho-machi). Next up on the itinerary: examine the collection at Mugonkan and take in the spiritual surroundings of Fukashi Shrine.
