ここの売店に売っている「全面勝訴」「不当判決」の手ぬぐいが欲しくて来訪。 旧松本裁判所だけでなく、様々な施設が保存され見ごたえありました。 映画等の撮影によく使われるのが解る気がします。 八重桜が咲くととてもキレイなそうなので、その時期にまた来たいです。

Nagano Main Areas


Nagano prefecture is an exciting mix of mountains, hot spring monkeys, and preserved Edo history. At the heart of the Japanese Alps, Nagano is one of the country's most popular destinations, whether in winter for its snow sports and the much-loved Jigokudani Monkey Park or in the warmer months for discovering the undulating hills on foot. For fantastic Edo architecture, head to the Kiso Valley for a 60-kilometer stretch of quaint wooden buildings that marked the Nakasendo route 200 years ago.
