Should I stop in Matsumoto on the way to takayama from tokyo

We are going to travel from Ueno to the festival in Takayama on April 13. Should we go straight through Nagoya or take the train/bus to Matsumoto and see the castle first and then take the bus to Takayama?

This is just a guess, but I would just take the train. At the time of the festival, I would want to have a simple assured transportation plan. Neither of the bus lines seems to accept reservations. japan-guide.com/e/…matsumoto

I much preferred Himeji castle, if that's on your itinerary, I would choose it even with the scaffolding. http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e3501.html
