There are three main accommodation locales in Matsumoto City – central Matsumoto, Asama Onsen, and the mountainous getaway of Kamikochi (please refer to our Kamikochi page).
In central Matsumoto, you will find a range of guesthouses, budget hotels, and full-service hotels. Matsumoto is a historic city and strolling its streets, from Matsumoto Castle to the converted traditional storehouses of Nakamachi Street via Nawate Street (the city’s famous “Frog Street” that runs past Yohashira Shrine) is highlight of any visit.
Nearby Asama Onsen and Utsukushigahara Onsen offer visitors the comfort and indulgence of traditional guesthouses and natural hot springs. Located approximately 20 to 30 minutes from Matsumoto City, the area is readily accessible by route bus or taxi and well worth the effort of getting there.
