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.
On the 18th (Sat), don't miss a visit to Matsumoto Castle, wander the streets of Nakamachi Street, admire the masterpieces at Matsumoto City Art Museum, then experience rural life at Daio Wasabi Farm, then take a stroll through Nawate Shopping District, and finally contemplate the long history of Yohashira Shrine. On the 19th (Sun), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: take a peaceful walk through Tashiro Shitsugen, take in the views from Kappa Bashi, then explore the activities along Taisho Pond, and finally contemplate the waterfront views at Pond Tashiro.
