Matsumoto castle was built about 400 years ago. It is a national treasure and a symbol of Matsumoto city. The black and white contrast of the castle with a backdrop of "the Japan Alps" is really photogenic! You also come across spring waters in every corner of the town. The water here is good to produce local rice wine, sake. Please try tasty spring water and sake.
Feel free to personalize this offer with Emi.
You can enter the castle towers and get in touch with the old wooden structures where the lords of the castle and samurai warriors once lived. You can also enjoy strolling along two streets which still retain the atmosphere of the Edo Period. For lunch, I recommend soba (buckwheat noodles) or Sanzokuyaki (deep-flied chicken), the examples among popular local cuisines in Matsumoto. After lunch, you can visit one of the brewery where you can taste local wine.
