Matsumoto is an area the pride of which is Matsumoto Castle, a tourist spot awarded three stars by the "Michelin Green Guides". The black walls, resembling crows, are the origin of its nickname, "Crow Castle". The town also serves as a perfect transit point to access the great mountains of the area such as Kamikochi, Yarigatake, and Hotaka-dake. Don't forget to try out the dishes made using soba and wild plants!
