619 2017/5/29 Transport to Utsukushi ga hara open air museum
Lisa

Hello. I'm going to be in Matsumoto 25th-28th June and would like to visit the Utsukushi ga hara open air museum. It appears there is a bus that runs there but only in August? Can anyone let me know if I can get there on public transport in June, or do I need to hire a car?
Thanks


Note of webmaster: Hi. The bus to the Open Air Museum operates only in August. But, there is another bus to Utsukushigahara Nature Preservation Center (you have to walk 100 min to the Open Air Museum, but it might be a good hike on the highlands) which starts operation from June 17. It operates only weekend until July 17 so you can ride 27th June (28th is Tour de Utsukushigahara cycling race, so the bus operates only in the afternoon).
It departs Matsumoto Sta West (Alps) Exit 8:15 and arrive at Utsukushigahara 9:30. For return, it departs Utsukushigahara 16:30 and arrive at Matsumoto Sta 17:45.
I hope 27th June will be fine and have a wonderful hike and art viewing.
