Set among the soaring Northern Japanese Alps

Matsumoto is located at the geographical center of the Japanese archipelago, in a highland region approximately 600m above sea level. The climate is mild and often sunny throughout the year, with pleasant breezes, and the city is blessed with magnificent views of the nearby Northern Japanese Alps.
The 400-year old Matsumoto Castle dates back to an era when the city was an important post station on the way between Edo and Kyoto. Today, Matsumoto combines its old world charm with a vigorous contemporary academic, cultural and musical culture. Matsumoto is an ideal destination for excursions and theme parties, being close to some of the nation’s most beautiful sites such as Utsukushigahara, Kamikochi, Norikura and the Asama onsen (hot springs). The local country cuisine is very popular, especially sake and soba buckwheat noodles made using natural spring water from the surrounding mountains.
