Matsumoto is famous for Matsumoto Castle, a three-star tourist spot by the "Michelin Green Guides". The black walls of the castle resembling crows are the origin of its nickname, "Crow Castle". The town is 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 of soba and wild plants!
