      A gem during our visit to Japan ”

      We only had the pleasure of staying in Matsumoto for one night during our trip to Japan. I was so happy with our decision to stay at tabi shiro guesthouse during our stop. I would highly recommend. The staff was wonderful to us and our baby (1 year old). The futons were comfortable and the bathrooms were very clean and nice compared to other shared bathrooms I’ve used during travel. We appreciated the free drinks at the bar and recommendations for dinner and breakfast. If I get a chance to visit Matsumoto again I would see if I could stay here.

      Quite a distance from train station but close to castle. There's only one shower room on 2nd floor, it can be quite a challenge in the morning. Upon checkin, I was told that it can be used from 6.30am onwards. Luckily I was staying for one night and not rushing for Alpine route or Kamikochi.
