Spring is just gathering momentum here in Matsumoto. As I rode my bike to work this morning I saw buds on the trees and hints of green everywhere. It even smells like spring. This weekend I was able to spend another fantastic weekend in Hakuba just a short train ride away. Unfortunately spring is there too and the resorts got rained on over the weekend:sad:. One of my good friends has been living up there and was in desperate search for a job in Matsumoto because of its balance of urban life and proximity to the mountains. He is not alone I know many people that come to Matsumoto even to visit, and don’t want to leave.
He got lucky and found a job last week. If you are lucky enough to be living here, get out and enjoy it and let us know what it is that you love about this place!
