I safely arrived after 3 hours plus train ride and find my way to hotel. Since I have this habits to book hotel within walking distance to train station or transportation so it was super convenient.
I was so amazed with the advance of their weapon which was on display according to era.
Tired walking in the castle, I walk out to enjoy the nice view of park within the castle area. Enjoying my afternoon and settle with ume triangle rice which I bought from convenient store at Tokyo this morning. Well prepared! I told you I never go hungry here in Japan. I then made my way back to hotel before it get dark since I still confuse with my way back.
I can afford to waste my energy to find my way back to hotel. More walking tomorrow!
One the way back , can't help to fall in love with this town again and again. WTH!
Since Matsumoto as castle town has thrived around the castle for the centuries, there are so many old buildings and rows of houses which ake one imagine what was Japan like years ago.
I end up myself at Nawate Street , which was a boarder between the samurai residences and commoner residences in edo era.
There is legend behind that frog figurines around Nawate Street.
