The official site says there is parking for passenger cars at Umezono-mae and it's charged at 600 yen for regular passenger vehicles. Hope that helps!

It must be wonderful! I had the idea of visiting Japan in that period, but I prefer when it's warmer.

In 2012 I've visited my friends who live in a countryside near Matsumoto. It was the end of March and the weather was quite cold, plus it was absolutely freezing cold at their home! We have central heating from October to middle May, so that cold house I couldn't stand! I can't understand why not to warm a house when it's so cold?
