Matsumoto Performing Arts Centre (MPAC) is known as the finest concert hall in the city, but not many people know it as a spot with a great viewpoint and a nice picnic area.
Step inside through the white metal door beside the main entrance and take the stairs or the lift to the top floor.
Walk outside and you're there!
Stretch yourself out and have a nice, relaxing time!
Fukashi Shrine located just behind the MPAC and is another recommended place to visit.
Matsumoto Performing Arts Centre: 10-min walk from JR Matsumoto Station. Open 8:00–22:00 daily (Closed irregularly)
