We started our second weekend in Japan with a nice stroll along the main Matsumoto streets.

We found out that there are countless number of shrines within the city. 

And many more water pumps. Qiqi liked the taste of the spring water from a well preserved water pump along Nakamachi street.

She also had some fun with a cute flurry cat outside a shop.

She then watched some Japanese doll making in progress. The master was glueing the hair to the dolls.

We passed by the Matsumoto city of museum art for some photo shoots.

Before we settled at the playground at Agata Forrest Park, for 2 full hours.

How can Qiqi miss the swing? 

We ended the cold day with a nice hot 鸳鸯火锅, which mum had been craving for days.
