Q: Can you see Matsumoto Castle from your room?
A: There are a few rooms from which you can see Matsumoto Castle. There is also a terrace deck in the annex building where you can see the mountains from the Northern Alps and Matsumoto Castle during the afternoon. Additionally, Matsumoto Castle’s tower is lit up until 22:00 throughout the year, wherein the castle stands out in the darkness, so we recommend taking a look at different times.

A: Our shop has a selection of products that we hope you’d like to take home as a souvenir, such as traditional crafts, the techniques of which have been passed down for generations, like Matsumoto temari or daruma, or modern glassware that combines glass and lacquerware made by craft artisans.
