... Out of the mountains and about 30 minutes from Nagano. Maleny/Montville style town. Warm here, about 24 degrees - so we were a bit hot as we dressed for the mountains.

It is chestnut season for this area so speciality shops with everything "chestnut" and cafes, beautiful craft stores, sake brewery (no thanks after last nights headache), galleries and museums.

We had no idea of what was happening, but it was a lovely drive first past apple and grape orchards and then on very narrow steep roads to the ski fields including Nozowan.

I've not plotted a route for tomorrow yet. Needless to say, judging by the mountains in all the photos, there will be climbing ...
Walked to Matsumoto castle, an amazing old wooden castle, shoes off, and walked up the 6 levels. Some stairs were very steep, almost vertical. Beautiful manicured gardens. We had ice creams under the vine covered pergola, and then went to the Matsumoto city museum, small but interesting. All tired and hungry went to ...
