Dear Hannah,

It's great that you are coming to Matsumoto. It's a more beautiful city than London, and it's less historical than London. It's in central Nagano, in central Japan, about three hours by car, train and bus from Tokyo.

There is a castle in Matsumoto. I think it's one of the most historic buildings in Japan, so a lot of people from other prefectures visit it every year. Matsumoto is surrounded by mountains, so it is famous for skiing in winter.

When you come to Matsumoto, please tell me soon.

Love, Miku xxx
