Hi there!

I assume that you mean this Kurobe Alpine Ticket?
Actually I had not heard of it before you posted about it here, I believe that you could buy it at Osaka station and go from there.

Unfortunately I don't know much more about it that you do, so I would recommend reading the Ticket Page carefully because it lists all places covered. Matsumoto is part of the coverage area so I do think that you can use it to travel back from there.

Even though this is only a little bit of information, I hope this helps!
