Matsumoto Mingei Hotel Kagetsu

Folk craft furniture

Matsumoto has a rich history of mingei, traditional Japanese crafts. The Matsumoto Hotel Kagetsu celebrates the mingei philosophy. The hotel opened in Meiji 20 (130 years ago). The older part of the hotel has rooms with some Matsumoto folk craft furniture. This part of Nagano is known for its hot springs waters and the hotel has an onsen on property.

It is also a short walk to cool spots like the Cohiludo cafe specializing in oyaki dumplings. Shizuka, a popular izakaya, is just around the corner from the hotel. The popular Nakamichi Dori and Nawate Dori streets are also nearby and are lined with shops for local crafts. Kaiundo wagashi confectionary store is also nearby.
