Myojin Pond, Matsumoto

4.4
#3 of 22 in Parks in Matsumoto
Immerse yourself in pristine nature amid rugged mountains and steep slopes at Myojin Pond. Life-like reflections of trees off the still surface and mist above the water will make you pause as you observe the vegetation on the bottom of the pond through crystal clear water. Moss-covered rocks lapped with water provide shelter for ducks and dragon flies, while curious snow monkeys hang out in evergreen trees above. Appreciate the small waterfall and wooden suspension bridge that add to the scene, then taste freshly caught fish on a skewer. You can find accommodations near the pond.

  • Walking with children of preschool age, about one hour from the Kappa bridge. So I went expecting a fantastic atmosphere, but was not. It is Ayu grilled with salt and eaten in a teahouse near the pond, fishing here is a ban, brought in from elsewhere. To walk on the right side of the river and comfortable in the forests. And good on the way back home just to the left. Mt.myoujindake view from the Myojin bridge is beautiful.

  • Destinations from the Kappa bridge for the time being here would be. I walk about 1 hour. I think it is worth coming in a very beautiful area. But if pond close, want to see the admission fee is so important. From the sacred shrine pay well as Zakat. And swollen after the rain is a quiet lake, PA trail is quite under water and, quite dangerous. You should keep both hands free.

  • Paying the admission fee (¥ 300) in the Office of the Hotaka shrine okumiya, go in the back. Look in the first one, pond behind Mt.myoujindake and trees reflected in the surface of the water, feel the solemn atmosphere in a quiet atmosphere. Two ships used in Mifune at the pier were tied. Back side (d), pond some large rocks around it and rolling, Kazuyuki pond and also felt the strength of different. Kazuyuki pond, two ponds and a name, the pond itself is one. Further back, three notices that the pond is as bad footing I had I didn't. Morning 6 o'clock you can visit.

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.
