Matsumoto Explore the Samurai Castle

Japan, Matsumoto Guide (B): Matsumoto Explore the Samurai Castle

After 2 nights at Asakusa, Tokyo, I move to Matsumoto which located in Nagano Prefecture, the Central part of Japan. Since I bought 7 days JR pass which cost USD244 inclusive fedex charges to Malaysia, so today will be my first day make use of my JR pass.

Train ride from Asakusa to Matsumoto for almost 3 hours and 50 minutes can easily cost me 9,240 Yen for one way. Yup! you read it right. So plan well if you in Japan because transportation apart from confusing due to many lines, they can easily eating up to your budget travel.

Travel like Japanese! Since it was for 3 hours plus train ride. I bought some bento from Shinjuku Station which cost me 900 yen which have clams and eels as toppings and coffee 130 yen from vending machine for my lunch while enjoying the beautiful view of country side. The view from train was super awesome due to rice field harvesting season and it was golden yellow all the way. 

I was at Matsumoto, due to this is a good place for those who plan to visit Kamikochi and Alpines Routes. This is my major place for my visit to Japan. I can't wait to share Alpines Routes beautiful view to all of you. Keep on to visit me it will come soon. I publish entry every Monday ,Wednesday and Friday.  ......
