Free entrance to Matsumoto Castle Gardens, and ice-cold beer!!!

What a great combination!

For those of you who don't already know, the Matsumoto council has announced that entrance to to Matsumotojo gardens will be free for all those wearing a Yukata.

This is great news for anyone who will be joining us for an ice-cold beer on Saturday(18 July) as we will already be in the correct attire!

Why not make the most of this opportunity by coming a little earlier and taking a stroll around the gardens with us.

I'll be in the garden from about 15:30, and then will move onto the beer garden at 17:00.

The name of the beer garden is YAMAGA IKUZO, and we've booked a table so there will be plenty of space for everyone. Please follow the link to the map below if you are not sure where it is.


I am looking forward to seeing you there!



  1. Before anyone asks, the beer is not free, it it Tana?

  2. That's a good point!

    Actually, if you want to pay Y1700 you can drink as much as you like for 2 hours!!!!!

    I suggest that the people who want to do this agree on a time to start and all sit at the same table, as the manager has stipulated that it's everyone or no-one if you choose this option. Fair play as many some of our guests will be driving home and therefore not drinking.

    Par for the course!

    Let's have fun - drink or no drink!!
