  • About 20 people around Magome-I went to nagiso. But it was a very hot day in Magome pass photograph taken in the direction of tsumago. From Magome pass in Nagano Prefecture increases down the road. Than the stone-paved dirt road shaded more so walking Bell. Along the way we stop by ontaki waterfall and mentaki waterfall. Ontaki waterfall feels negative ions, very cool for a while a break has been. Big stone Orchid river water is also very simple, white was very impressive. Next to the parking lot of the tsumago went down in the LAN River Waterfront. Go to tsumago and find a broom in his shop, 450 Yen was bought and returned. The square was reconstructed to walk around in memory of the bygone days. Some people walk from there to the nagiso less slow like.
