I will be in Japan in august 2019. ;)

I have already been in Matsumoto. So i wonLt really have to do any sightseeing there.
Maybe there is an option to stay at another place? How can i also fit Norikura in this plan if i have 3 days for Kusatsu, Norikura and Kiso Valley?

2) Matsumoto/Norikura
3) Norikura/Kiso Valley

We would like to see Zengoronotaki, Ushidome Pond, Sanbondaki, Highland, Mt. Norikura and Kiso Valley Magome-Tsumago Trail.
