I’m planning to visit Nagano prefecture in May to visit Zenkoji, Togakushi Jinja, Yudanaka Onsen, and the Magome-Tsumago trail. 

I’m also thinking of taking a day trip to Matsumoto castle, but I want recommendations of places and attractions that I can visit on the same day without spending too much time on buses and trains. Is Kamikochi a viable visit on the same day as Matsumoto?

Hi Jayvee,

Kamikochi is a great place to visit. It is about 90 minutes from Matsumoto Station by train and bus–somewhat long, but not too long of a ride to not be able to see both the castle and Kamikochi in the same day.

Other places that you can visit in Matsumoto include:

Let me know if I can help with anything else.
