Travel to Matsumoto - 松本へ


On Monday, I have lunch at Karuizawa and go to Nagano where I take Shinano express train for Matsumoto. Passing Shinonoi, it gains the altitude and on our left below expands a magnificent view of the Nagano plain and surrounding mountains. The inn I will stay on the day is Kishoan that claims a modern blend of western and Japanese designs. A great care is given to offer the relaxing atmosphere with spacious rooms and facility as well as collection of bath including outdoor, flat jacuzzi, and sauna. In Matsumoto, Myojinkan of Tobira hotsprings is the ingenious reference for a retreat, and in comparison this one has not yet matched the level in terms of authenticity.
