I really like the new website - I had been looking for a website like this about Matsumoto that lists all of the hotels - having all of the local hot springs listed is a bonus as well.

There is one festival that wasn't included in events - The Asama Onsen area Heso Festival (festival of the belly button.) That festival was a really good time, it's in July or August I believe..

Cheers,
Linda


Note of webmaster: Linda,
Thank you for the message. I'm glad you like the site. We did a little research about the Asama Onsen area Heso Festival. It looks like it was held from 1985 to 1994, but has not been held since. It's sorry to hear this because a belly button festival sounds like fun. Thanks for the heads up though. Please let us know if there is anything else that we are missing or that you think we should add.
All the best!
Liza



2 2007/3/16 Cherry Blossoms?

Greetings,

What an excellent website! I'm now very enthusiastic about visiting Matsumoto.

What's the best place in town for viewing cherry blossoms? And when will they bloom this year?

Many thanks!
Julie


Note of webmaster: Hi Julie,

Thanks for posting your message.

According to "cherry blossom forecast" by Japanese organization, cherries will start blossoming on 4/5 in Matsumoto. Maybe mid-April is the best to see them.

Matsumoto Castle is famous for cherry. Jyoyama Park and Susuki River are popular among local pepole to enjoy cherries and BBQ. Also, Koubouyama and Hikarujyouyama(in Azumino City) are good hiking courses among cherry trees.

Congratulations on the new website, it looks really cool.

I lived in Matsumoto for three years, looking around this site really makes me want to move back. Its such a great city, close to the mountains, clean air, trendy shops/cafes/bars.

I'll be back...!
