[Main Part]

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.

[Closing]

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.Japanese noodle Matsumoto1
