Golly what a beautiful place. I am wanting to travel overseas for the first and only time, I've chosen matsumoto for its beauty. My daughter said she will accompany me. But all the travel deals/tours are ski packages : /
How can I visit for a few weeks with ease? So Ive seen this add and have applied.
Note of webmaster: Hi Julianne
Will you visit our beautiful land this winter? Even in winter and you don't ski, there are some spots and experiences you can enjoy. Especially staying Hot Springs and soaking in an outside bath with snow views is gorgeous. Visiting the Matsumoto Castle and some museums and strolling in some small streets downtown are also fun.

I have a large modern 3bedroom house located in Cairns, Queensland; an area well-known for its rainforests, beaches and Great Barrier Reef. The house is fully furnished and would come with a vehicle. I am hoping to arrange a house swap in the Matsumoto area of Japan during the month of April 2013, for a 4 week period. The house would have to accommodate 2 adults and 2 children.
Please send any enquiries to my email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
I would like to stop over at Matsumoto for few hours on the way to Nagano for my upcoming trip. We will carry 2 big luggages and 1 small one, will I be able to store them at the Matsumoto Station?
Note of webmaster: Hi, Daryl
In the 2nd floor of the Matsumoto Station, there are coin lockers (see here). If all of them are used especially on the weekend, there are four other places of coin lockers in the 1st floor (outside), on another corridor of the 2nd floor, in the Ario Shopping Center, on a wall of karaoke "Big Echo"'s building. I heard Hotel Ace Inn in front of the Station has a luggage store service (not sure).

firstly, thankyou so much for having this website. It's been extremely helpful for planning our last 2 trips to your amazing city.
I've a question that is pretty similar to the previous question on this message board.
We are visiting again from the 12th of May 2012 and we are snow deprived Australians. We are leaving it a little late, but will there be snow in the mountains in places like the shin hotaka ropeway viewing platform, or along any of the mountain passes that are accessable by car?
Thankyou again for the website!
Note of webmaster: Jeremy,
Mt. Norikura has a great snowy valley "Dai-sekkei", which is perfect place for your needs, I suppose.
Norikura Spring Bus for skiers and climbers will operate since end of April (depending on the weather condition). You can go to Kanko Center or Sanbondaki if you have or rent a car and transfer to the bus.
You might be able to walk in great snow walls like this blog after you get off the bus.

Hi, we are travelling end of march (2012) and was looking at staying near the snow monkeys to see , some snow!.. My kids want to see the castle and time is limited, is there snow in Matsumoto around March 29th (I realise your crystal ball may be foggy but on average is there snow?)
Note of webmaster: Gidday Gordon.
On average no, not IN Matsumoto....though there will still be snow around Matsumoto in the hills and mountains.
2-3 weeks later you will have a Very Beautiful visit to the Castle as the Cherry Blossoms bloom. and as music from the Castle's Moon viewing room fills the air.
It is awesome watching the Sakura (cherry blossoms) at night and sipping tea at the castle served by women in Kimono as ancient style Japanese music is played .
2 months earlier you can see the Ice festival...a treat for most.
If luck has it ...you may even see Snow, Cherry Blossoms and the Castle together as It did last year on the 19th of April or there abouts
Hope that helped.

Thank you so much for your blog. We've had two great days in Matsumoto and could easily have stayed longer. I especially recommend this city for people with kids. My partner, Matt, is writing an article on Matsumoto (may or may not end up being published) and had a few questions: 1. Does anyone know the story of Okada-San from the bike shop ( Okada Cycling Museum) in Takasago-cho ( our Japanese wasn't up to the explanation)? 2. Does anyone know more about two of the early 20C artists featured in the permanent collection at the Art Museum - Kishoyshi Tateishi and Hakute Ishii? We will be encouraging all our friends to visit Matsumoto. Thanks again, Sonya
Note of webmaster: Sonya,
Umm.. You and your partner may know some aspects of Matsumoto more than us!
I know Okada bike shop (a page about it in our Japanese site is here) but I don't know his story. I don't know either of Kishoyshi Tateishi (if he is a master carpenter of Kaichi school, his first name seems to be Seiju) and Hakute (should be Hakutei) Ishii.
If your husband has specific questions about them, e-mail from this page. I can interview Okada-san and/or staff of the Museum.
We will appreciate your article and encouragement to your friends very much!
