  • Nice street to stroll down for shopping and restaurants, it wasn't very long and runs parellel to Nawate street 
  • Central streets of Matsumoto with special architecture. We took a short walk a day in the afternoon and there was much movement. Had (closed) restaurants and shops. Not is need much time to visit it, as is an area not very large.

  • Souvenirs and choose gadgets are available at the castle-like atmosphere. I bought a wine, Baumkuchen, karinto. Trendy tableware shop, and exciting.
