Japan vacation, pt5

En-route from Kofu to Matsumoto, we went to a gorge where a lot of minerals and crystals could be found. Just look at that giant chunk of crystal!

There was a waterfall too.

Matsumoto Castle! One of the few castles from the Shogunate Era that survived intact.

In line to get inside the castle! It was very busy…

Another nice view, after we saw everything there was to see inside.

The roof of an old sake brewery that was relocated to a street with lots of traditional storehouses. You could walk around it, which was fun.

After leaving Matsumoto, we visited a wasabi farm! Such a relaxing atmosphere there, and the fresh wasabi we had was so super-delicious! Nothing like the horseradish-paste that goes for wasabi in sushi restaurants over here…
