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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Matsumoto: Takayama (Hida Great Limestone Cave and Ohashi Collection Kan Museum, Sanmachi Suji, & more), Daiho-ji Temple (in Aoki-mura) and Kusatsu-machi (Yubatake, Sainokawara Park, & more). On the 20th (Mon), spend an exhilarating day on the slopes at Iizuna Resort. On the 30th (Thu), spend an exhilarating day on the slopes at Tsugaike Kogen Ski Resort. And it doesn't end there: step into the grandiose world of Matsumoto Castle, fly down the slopes at Norikura Kogen (Highland), contemplate the waterfront views at Taisho Pond, and stroll through Nozawa Onsen Ski Resort.
