Solo travel experience

Went to Matsumoto on a solo travel for 2 nights. It is a laidback city, with beautiful backdrop of the Japanese Alps. I used a bicycle to move around and visit the old castle. It is easy to navigate and safe. The train and bus station is in the center of town and easy to access. Lots of cafes and eateries, shops and bakeries. Wonderful city as a base for a trip to Kamikochi or Nagano.
