Matsumoto is not that much further north than Tokyo, but it has a very different climate. Nagano prefecture, where Matsumoto is based in, is famous for housing the Japanese Alps. This volcanic mountain range may stretch across a wide portion of Japan but Nagano is where the highest points can be found. Because of this increased altitude, the area is a lot colder and perfect for skiing as well as other winter sports. The Japanese Alps are volcanic and heat up many pockets of water in the region. This has led to an abundance of hot springs that are a massive tourism draw for the local area. So here is our list of the best tourist-friendly Onsen Ryokan In Matsumoto, Nagano Prefecture.
