My parents are coming to visit us over the Christmas period so we have decided to visit Matsumoto for a few days. We will be there 26th Dec - 29th Dec and was wondering if you had any suggestions? We already know about the castle but is there anything else worth seeing or doing?
Thanks in advance!!
Note of webmaster: Hi,
If your parents are interested in traditional art and hisotry, Ukiyo-e Museum and Old Court Museum (close on 29th) might be good to visit. Near the museum, Kametaya Sake Brewery is also fun.
If your parents are interested in miso, one of Japanese food culture, Ishii Miso Brewery is a good place to see around and have a lunch of miso. At Matsumoto Museum of Art near Ishii Miso, you can see Yayoi Kusama's famous art world and some calligraphy arts of other artists.
On 28th, at the entrance and two gates of the castle, Susuharai (soot sweeping) will be held.
Enjoy your Christmas with your parents in Matsumoto!

Hello! I currently live in Matsumoto, and I'd like to join a gym. I know there is one near the city center, but I can't seem to find any information about it online. My japanese ability is very low, so I feel nervous about signing up without google translate to assist me! Are there any gyms with websites? Or do any of the hotels offer memberships for their gyms?
Note of webmaster: Hello Julie,
There are some gyms other than "Central" you mentioned, such as Renaissance and SAM, but they don't have English pages either. I haven't heard hotels collaboration with gyms.
The Central's website has some Japanese terms and conditions for membership, so I suppose you had better visiting there and talk (some workers might understand some English, I hope). If you need volunteer interpreter to go with you to assist, e-mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org). Probably I can introduce someone.

Hi, I am travelling with my family to Matsumoto in a weeks time. I will then travel around Kamicochi and some local onsen and then to Takayama. I have read on line that I can get a 4 day bus pass from Nohi bus company, but their website says I have to buy it in Takayama, does anyone know whether I can buy one in Matsumoto? Thanks.
Note of webmaster: Hi, Tim
The Alpico bus in Matsumoto sells it jointly. You can buy it at the Matsumoto Bus Terminal (or Shin Shimashima Station). See this blog, which is still the same even this year. If you come from Tokyo by bus, you can buy the set ticket with the bus at Shinjuku Bus Terminal, too.
