There are few guesthouses you come across on your travels that actually feel like 'home'. Though for me this one came pretty close to that. Shuko and Brian have created a very homely base in a small house next to the river close to the centre of the city, perfect for exploring Matsumoto and the surrounding region.
The rooms are all Japanese style (futons on tatami mats) which made a refreshing change from the typical crammed in bunk beds.
