583 2016/7/11 Hiking Tsubakuro dake
Pun 
THAILAND
Hi, I will visit Matsumoto on Jul.15.16 and will do hiking to Tsubakurodake on Jul.16.16 then back to Matsumoto on Jul.17.16.

Is there any bus from Matsumoto direct to Nakabusa Onsen?

Any recommend Beef/Wagyu restaurant?


Note of webmaster: Hi,
There is no direct bus. You should go to Hotaka Station by JR and ride a direct bus to Nakabusa.

Restaurants you can eat wagyu beef is,
- Shangri-La in Tokyu REI Hotel in front of the station
- Restrorin (also good for gibier, a little expensive) between the station and castle
- BBQ restaurants, Meigetsukan (a little expensive) and Botanen (Kobe beef)
Take care not to eat too much

Is there another kominkan in Matsumoto beside M-Wing?


Note of webmaster: Hello, there are many (maybe more than 100) kominkan if we count small local kominkan.
Some sightseeing spots are also kominkan and anyone can rent a room. For example, old buildings in Agatanomori Park, Nakamachi Kurassic-kan, Performing Arts Center are kinds of kominkan.
Also, you can rent a room in the citizen support center (2th of TIC near the Castle) free-of-charge if you are Matsumoto citizen and register.

Hi Andy, thank you for your help earlier on the Orange locations. We successfully completed the day trip last week and visited all the locations planned, mainly Nawate dori, Yohashira jinja, Matsumoto jo, Joyama koen & Agatanomori koen. The lady at the TIC near Matsumoto jo was really helpful, and we successfully gotten the two (manga and movie) location maps from there as well.

Jouyama koen was the most challenging (physically, lol) but the view that greeted us there was magnificent! Agatanomori koen itself was very pretty and well maintained. Thank you once again for your help. It was a fulfilling and enjoyable day trip!


Note of webmaster: It is our pleasure that you found out all the locations and enjoyed them!
Thanks for your comment.
Come again if you have a chance.

580 2016/5/26 Ticket refundable??
Lillith

Hello,
Regarding the four-day buses and shinhotaka ropeway ticket that costs 12000 yan. can I ask for a partly refund if the ropeway closes due to bad weather? I am visiting the area in August and I think it is a really good deal. my only concern is the unavailability of the ropeway. is there a way to confirm it with the alpico bus company? thanks for your time and effort, I really appreciate it!
Lillith


Note of webmaster: Hi,
The Japanese leaflet (http://www.alpico.co.jp/access/ticket/pdf/panf006[1].pdf) says, it cannot be refund after you purchase it. It is a pass for buses, trains in Hida-Takayama, Matsumoto, Shirakawago Area and the ropeway, so even if the ropeway doesn't operate, it is not refundable.

Thank you.

That day is a very busy day in Matsumoto, so if you want to stay there, please reserve by yourself or ask me (info@mtlabs.co.jp) to reserve (tell your name, necessity of meals (dinner and/or breakfast) hotel of the previous day) on your behalf.

577 2016/5/25 buses in matsumoto
maggie 
TAIWAN
Hello, I'm visiting Matsumoto this August. I plan to visit Matsumoto castle and Joyama park. I did a little research and narrowed down to these 4 buses that can take me to Joyama park from the castle and back to the station.
市役所>城山公園:
【41~42】三才山線
depart time14:41or16:21¥200
get off at成山公園口
【45】アルプス公園線
14:06¥230or below
get off at開松
城山公園口>Station:
【40】三才山線
17:17¥200
【100】北市内線東まわり(11分車程)
18:58¥200

Can you take a look at bus No.45's fare chart? I don't really get it. How much does it cost from 市役所 to 開松?Where is 開松stop located, what direction and approximately how far should I go after getting off the bus? (I just need a general idea of these info~ Don't wanna get lost!)

As for 城山公園口stop, umm...where is it ?@@ Google map won't show. Just let me know if there are directions and signs nearby and I'll be fine...

Thank you~
Maggie


Note of webmaster: Hi,
I suppose it costs 210 yen from 市役所 to 開松 (probably). The map of the 開松stop is here (in Japanese) and it takes a few minute walk (to west) to the park.
The map of 城山公園口stop is here. It takes 15 min walk (to west) to the park.

There is a good viewing tower and a statue of cute child seat in the park. Enjoy it!

576 2016/5/21 Matsumoto - Kamikochi - Takayama
marcia

Hi,
Our family plan to visit Matsumoto (one night), take a morning shuttle to a day trip in Kamikochi and continue to sleep in Takayama.
1. Is this plan reasonable (or maybe too much for one day?
2. Where is the best place to get info regarding the shuttles?


Note of webmaster: Hello,
1. If the "morning shuttle" means the direct bus departing Matsumoto Bus Terminal 5:30 a.m., you can arrive at Kamikochi 7:05. It takes about 1:30 from Kamikochi to Takayama, so you can see around Kamikochi almost all day. Even if you ride the direct bus departing the Bus Terminal 10:15, you can see around Kamikochi several hours.
2. "The best place" means website? If so, you can see the timetable here and other information here. If you mean a real place, visit TICs in Matsumoto.

574 2016/5/17 Taxi from ogizawa to Matsumoto?
Linda 
NETHERLANDS
Hello!
We are considering taking the alpine route from tateyama to ogizawa. The last bus from ogizawa to shinano omachi leaves at 5 pm, but
Is it possible to take a taxi from ogizawa to Matsumoto in the evening (around 6 pm)? And what are the costs?
Thanks!


Note of webmaster: Hi, Linda
The last bus leaves at 5:55 pm from Apr 16 till Nov 3.
If you want to take a taxi, I think some taxis are waiting or you can call it. Matsumoto is far from Omachi and it seems it takes around 13,000 yen.
Have a nice trip!
- Andy
