Tsumagojuku, Nagiso-machi

4.5
#2 of 13 in Things to do in Nagiso-machi
Explore a town straight out of the distant past at Tsumagojuku, a restored and protected Edo-period settlement. Number 49 of the 69 post towns on the Nakasendo (an Edo-era trade road), the village fell into obscurity with the arrival of a new railroad at the turn of the 20th century. However, diligent locals gradually reestablished it as a functioning town, and today you can walk the old streets experiencing the historical atmosphere. Wander around the village to explore gift shops, restaurants, and a modest but informative museum. Bring your camera to make the most of the various photo opportunities among the buildings.

  • Lovingly restored by local people, this town is an outdoor museum of Edo life and times. The local people banded together in 1967 to save their town and the now restored results are quite impressive. ...  more »
  • 11 Jan., I visited as a 2 night 3 day solo-to-ring last visited. Even on weekdays, tourists walked less, while relaxing and enjoying the town. It is also two families with women and ate lunch in the peaceful restaurant came from memories. Mandatory retirement, and then over here ride around (I'm farming I). Incumbent: physical, was freed from the emotional stress that makes us realize once again, a gentle time is flowing like that. Take those two are doing fine now, and I like to be there.

  • South Kiso and tourist information to get the bus from the train station parking lot (you can transfer to the bus to Magome out here), coin-operated locker is located next door. Godsend Jr even bother and travel bag through the town empty handed, so enjoy. I think the concern from people who do not use the car rental in particular, foreign visitors is very good. Moreover, introduced to the 100-yen coin return"", so I was impressed. With that feeling, and bought more souvenirs. With just a number there wasn't much like there is a cause for concern.
