I took a day trip to Matsumoto City, Nagano Prefecture and visited several places. In this article, I will write about Kaichi School Museum.
The Kaichi School was one of the first schools in Japan. It opened in a temporary building in 1873 and moved to new premises in 1876. This western-style building, fused with Japanese elements, was designated an Important Cultural Property in 1961. In 1965 the old school building was turned into an education museum.

Kaichi School Museum is about ten minutes walk from Matsumoto Castle about which I wrote in my previous article. So in case you visit Matsumoto, I would recommend you visit both of them.
By the way, when I moved from Matsumoto Castle to Kaichi School Museum, I dropped in a Japanese noodle restaurant to have a lunch. It was also good.
