Matsumoto

No matter if you're looking for brief break or planning a longer vacation, Matsumoto is a terrific destination.

This area of Nagano has about 210,000 people.

The national capital, Tokyo, is situated 110 miles east of Matsumoto, while Chiisakata-gun is 13 miles to the east.

Escape the ordinary and be transported into a world of imagination at the Daio Wasabi Farm and the Tirol no Mori. Want more? Yatsugatake Farm Stand and Tateshina Leisure Land are sure to keep the smiles and laughter flowing.

An afternoon investigating the incredible marine environments of Tateshina Aquarium will deepen your appreciation for this incredible planet of ours.

If you have an interest in native and exotic animals, put the Yatsugatake Alpaca Farm on your trip list. Be sure to ask at the entrance about zookeeper presentations and where to find the zoo's most popular inhabitants.

To learn more about the noble art of brewing, take the opportunity to visit the Kametaya Sake Brewery. The knowledgeable brewmaster will teach you everything you need to know about the different brewing methods and techniques, and what it is that makes these beers so enjoyable!

Experienced wine taster or not, a day of testing the different blends at the region's vineyards won't disappoint. If you'd like to visit more than one, certainly add on the Goichi Winery, Azumino Winery and the Izutsu Winery to the schedule. It doesn't matter what order you choose. They are all great fun!

Amid a wide range of plant species, an afternoon at the Barakura English Garden is certain to be a pleasant one.

When it's time for a break, grab something for lunch and make your way over to one of the area's leafy green spaces, such as Ichinose Meadow or Kirigamine Highland. Suwashi Kohan Park and the Yatsugatake Natural and Culture Park are two more nice places to while away the day and catch up on some reading.

If you need a bit more information about the area, talk with the staff at Kamikochi Visitor Center.

Listen to the sound of crashing water and enjoy the untouched scenery at Otome Waterfall and Yoshigoro Falls.

Do you love birds? Pack your binoculars and see which feathered friends you can spot at Ushidome Pond and Taisho Pond. No luck? Head on over to Myojin Pond and Mishaka Pond and have another try.

Switch off your phone and have a rest from the modern world at Mount Jonen and Yashimagahara Marsh. Yokoya Gorge and Alps Park Matsumoto are also recommended by nature enthusiasts.

The area's exhibition spaces are a gold mine of interesting stories and quirky facts. Enjoy the contemplative atmosphere as you check out the displays at the Japan Ukiyo-e Museum and the Matsumoto City Museum. The Matsumoto Timepiece Museum and the Kaichi School Museum are also worth a visit.

From the instant you walk through the doors, it's plain to see that the collections of the Niekawa Sekisyo Kiso Kokokan and the Hiraide Museum are a labor of love. Looking back from behind protective glass, these fantastic specimens can't help but spark your curiosity. You could also stop by the Idojiri Archaeological Museum and the Togariishi Museum of Jomon Archaeology.

Matsumoto is a frenzy of artistic activity, with gallery and exhibition spaces everywhere you look. Start off your tour of this creative enclave with a stop at the Taizi Harada Art Museum and the Kitazawa Museum of Art. If you can fit them in, the Toyoshina Museum of Modern Art and the Azumino Jansem Museum are also well worth your time.

By illuminating our past, the Old High School Memorial Museum and the Narakawa Museum of History and Folklore help us prepare for the future.

To discover more about the area's rich and colorful past, pay a visit to its remaining historical sites. Commence your history tour at Matsumoto Castle or Takashima Castle. When it comes to days of old, there's always something else to know. Honjin Iwanami House and the Kurassic are two more insightful places to check out.

Whether you consider yourself a spiritual person or not, you'll be sure enjoy an afternoon at Suwa Shrine and the Onsenji Temple. The Raiko-ji Temple and the Jiun-ji Temple are also interesting holy sites.

Before you pack up your bags and head off home, make sure you visit a few of Matsumoto's lesser-known attractions. Tashiro Bridge and Kappa Bridge are two interesting options. Also, think about a visit to Myojin Bridge and the Nagano Prefecture Forestry Research Center if your schedule allows.
