Matsumoto City (Kamikochi, Norikura, Shirahone, & Nomugi Pass)

Matsumoto City is a population of about 240,000 people spread out at the foot of the Northern Alps. There are many tourist spots, such as the “National Treasure Matsumoto Castle,” a symbol of Matsumoto, and the “former Kaichi Elementary School building,“ a representative of elementary school architecture from the era of civilization. There are also “Nawate Dori street” and “Nakamachi Dori street,” which retain the atmosphere of the castle town.
Matsumoto Castle is the oldest existing five-story, six-floor castle tower in Japan and is one of the five national treasures, along with Himeji Castle, Inuyama Castle, Hikone Castle, and Matsue Castle. The area around the castle has been developed as a park, and during the cherry blossom season, beautiful rows of cherry blossom trees decorate the area.
April and May are the best times to visit for sightseeing.
