Walk across the wooden suspension bridge of Kappa Bashi for spectacular scenery of mountain peaks and the rushing river below. In the heart of Kamikochi valley, the bridge also offers access to hiking trails that wind through the untouched forested scenery. Enjoy a vista of the magnificent Hotaka mountains from the 36 m (118 ft) long and 3 m (10 ft) wide bridge. Information and visitor centers are onsite, and a three-story cafeteria serves up refreshments in the tourist center.

Where to stay in Matsumoto

Matsumoto strikes a balance between the old and the new in its accommodations, as it does with most other aspects of its urban design and culture. The area directly around the main train station houses many of the newer options in town, including some large hotels, both basic and luxury, and a couple of smaller, family-run options. The more historic area north of here has hotels and "ryokan" (guesthouses) with a little more history and character, and with the main attractions of the old town on their doorsteps. The surrounding rural area features a number of hotels with "onsen" (traditional Japanese spas) and campsites.
