Tsumagojuku, Nagiso-machi

(4.5/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Tsumagojuku and many more Nagiso-machi attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Nagiso-machi vacation planner.
