In 1965 the former school was opened as a museum of education. The museum inside the fantastic looking building showcases the history of some of the education material and architectural materials of the period. The education materials contain some old textbooks that were used during the Edo period as well as textbooks, diaries and certificates from the Meiji era.
The Former Kaichi School is located a short walking distance from Matsumoto castle and makes a great place to visit after seeing the castle. You can walk to both of them from JR Matsumoto Station in about 15-20 minutes.
