Tsumagojuku, Nagiso-machi
(4.6/5 based on 200+ 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.

  • This village is truly beautiful and very photogenic. During the day it is a bit of a tourist honey pot, but there are some good shops, local attractions and the Tourist Office in the centre has plenty...  more »
  • Old village to the old wooden houses and the undeniable, few tourists and extremely interesting charm at the level of the Japanese architecture. The villagers live in most of the houses and they opened shops in their house (which delights a few foreign tourists or Japanese), they are almost all smiling and help you without problem (apart from a restaurant or there is a mini yellow cart, they don't seem to like tourists, but if we don't stop) no problem). The temple that dominates the village next to the cemetery is a visit for its simplicity and its quietness. you will pass a good time out of time, a romance is lost in a lot of places in the Japan, but it has managed to keep his soul. Pedestrian village so no noise of cars.
