Sonya, there will be 'Sunrise shuttle bus' operated in Jul. The bus leaves Norikura Kogen where the base of Mt. Norikura for Tatamidaira.
Here is my idea. Stay one night in down town Matsumoto and one night in Norikura Kogen.
The bus leaves Norikura Kogen at 3:20am for Tatamidaira, see sunrise, stay there and walk around for 2-3hrs and get down to Norikura Kogen. Cost you 2400jpy for round trip ticket for adult, kid maybe 1200jpy. Also, there is bus goes to Takayama via Hirayu from Tatamidaira.
I could show you pics show how beautiful Mt. Norikura is.
For more details, pls contact me at Matsumoto Tourism & Convention Association at 'email@example.com'
I will get back to you as soon as I come back to my office. I'm now in KL, and BKK after on business trip, promoting Matsumoto.

Thanks for the really useful site. We are a family of 2 kids and 2 adults and want to either stay in Matsumoto 2 nights in July, or spend a night in Matsumoto and a night in Norikura Kogen area en route to Takayama. We were thinking of staying at Ryokan Seifu-so but I was wondering if it is too far from the centre if we're there just one night? I read the car hire section on your site, any further suggestions?
Note of webmaster: Sonya,
How about riding free bikes hire instead of car? Seihu-so has such service (I am not sure they have four avaliable bikes) and some other places in Matsumoto lend free bikes. You don't need look for parking lots (and eco-friendly) if you ride bikes.
Otherwise, rent a car or ride a public bus. If you walk, I guess it takes about 40 mins from Seifu-so to Matsumoto Castle.
I want to know if some band will do a concert in matsumoto or near de zone
Note of webmaster: Matias,
What kind of band/music do you mean? Jazz, hip-hop, J-pop..? Live performances/concerts are sometimes held in live houses like ALECX and halls.
|313 2011/5/10||Electronic Shops|
Hi! i was wondering if there`s an elecronic shop (like Yodobashi or Biccamera or something similar) in Matsumoto or in near zones.
Thank you very much.
Note of webmaster: Hi, Sergio
Yamada Denki(=electronic) near Minami(south)-Matsumoto (map) is a big shop.
Eiden, also a big electronic shop chain, is closer from Matsumoto or Kita(north) Matsumoto station (map).

Dear Sir / Mdm,
We will be going to Matsumoto as it is the nearest town from the exit of Tateyama - Kurobe Alipne route sometime around end of May 2011. We need to get to Nagoya by night. Could you let us know how do we make a booking for bus to Nagoya (we are not considering the train as we are traveling on budget:), and what is the latest time we can leave Matsumoto? We hope to be able to spend some time exploring the town :) So long as we can reach Nagoya at night, even late night, we are fine. Look forward to hear from you, thank you!
Note of webmaster: Hello Shirleen,
The phone number to book the bus is 052-582-0489. I don't know there is an operator any who speak English (maybe not).
You can book it on this website, but it is also in Japanese.
The latest bus is 19:30 (see the timetable).
Probably the latest bus will be not full, but if you cannot speak Japanese and want to book it to assure your seats, I can book it (only book, you can purchase it before ride) instead of you if you firstname.lastname@example.org me your name, date to ride, number of people (male/female, adults/children), and your phone number in Japan or your country.

Hi Andy, I was reading a post of yours from last year about a sports bar called "Garage No.2"（near the big crossing "Misuzu" near Shinshu University). Do you have a phone no. for them?
Also there's a big sports bar in north Matsumoto but I can't remember the name. Do you have their contact details?
The reason I'm looking for sports bars is I'd like to watch the royal wedding in a pub atmosphere. Do you think sports bars and snack bars will be showing it? I know the Japanese are all very excited about this wedding.
Note of webmaster: The sports bar is "Spocafe GARAGE". Their phone No. is 0263-36-2082, e-mail is email@example.com. Refer to (Google Map and their Japanese website). I think it is the "big sports bar in north Matsumoto" you wrote.
I don't know they show the royal wedding program (BS-1 from 5:30pm). Maybe they can show it if you ask -- I hope so. A problem might be that a sport event, figure skating, which Japanese are also exited with, will start from 8:00 of the same day
