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.

  • Cross the bridge to tsumago-Juku parking my car ran good scenery along the River towards the stage. Streets groves and nature was the scene of Edo period in a historical drama. Kurashiki and Kanazawa's Higashi Chaya would continue until the scale is completely different and the town where streets? I felt funny expression but it still thing, not real. Distance of 1 station and a half in the city say it is great thing today day in natural surroundings and slow time

  • We visited on a summer weekday. During the Edo period post town is left in its entirety. Breakfast space can take a break in the Middle, that was hot. One hour's stroll can be enough if. Post offices along the way. Are the postal service normally near the entrance and Exhibition Hall, and exhibits include old post and postal delivery uniform is interesting. Oyaki and connoisseur can eat, and several shops selling snacks on the way. Personally, sometimes called Southern Nagano, is recommended for the connoisseur.
