Near Shinshu University, a quiet inn on the Metoba River. An extremely friendly & welcoming place to stay. The owner, Taeko Tanaka, will look after you in English and generally help make your stay in Matsumoto something special. The food is great, rooms clean & quiet, not expensive. Although a little further out than downtown proper, still only 15 minutes walk down the river to the castle — so they’ll lend you bikes for free to get around!
Vegetarian meals available upon request.
