To be honest, I do not remember very much from this quick pitstop in Matsumoto, except that we stopped in an absolutely delicous ramen restaurant shortly beforehand. The place was called 麺屋蔵人, and you can find it on Google Maps here. We arrived to the restaurant expecting it to be a mediocre road trip food quickie in the middle of nowhere, only to discover that there was a queque to be seated! The menu was most definitely not in English, but the drawings sufficed and so did pointing with a finger to order. I would love to get my hands on another one of those bowls, especially as I write to you from the dark, coldness of an approaching Danish winter.
