This hotel is only a 5 minutes' walk from the famous Matsumoto Castle, which is rated one of the "Best of Japan" places for cherry blossom viewing. The staff are polite and helpful and informed us of the night light-up at the castle ground in celebration of the cherry blossom. When we were leaving for dinner, it started to rain and the lady staff at the door stopped us before running in to get umbrellas for us. She even went through the trouble of getting me a black-red umbrella to match my outfit! I was pleasantly surprised. The room was spacious and comfortable and we got the view of the mountains from our window. There is a public hot-spring bath right at the hotel as well. And the restaurants there are also award-winning eateries. Highly recommended. We enjoyed our stay there and regretted it was only for one night. Will certainly return to Matsumoto and to Hotel Kagetsu the next time I visit Japan.
