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.

    I urge you to come walk to Magome and Tsumago, 2 historical villages or time stopped to spend... and especially take the time to connect them to feet following a wonderful trail to the departure of Magome. The trail is well marked, and it will get you through dense forest of Japanese cedar, stunts, and you will meet various plants, fruit trees and flowers Japanese, as well as many other surprises that are well all along the route. A beautiful moment out of the traditional tourist routes.
