Inspirock Rating:
4.1/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web
Magome-juku gives you a view of a town from the distant past, transporting you back to Edo-period Japan. The 43rd of 69 stations on the Nakasendō, this postal town was prosperous and cosmopolitan for many years until the Chūō Main Line was opened, and it fell into obscurity. Having been restored to its former glory, you can view restored antiquated buildings along the main post road, peppered with inns and shops that would service the travelers on the Nakasendō. At the upper end of the town, you can enjoy panoramic views across the hills to Mt. Ena, and if you fancy a hike, you can walk along the post road to the next town, which takes you past waterfalls and through forests.

  • In the Edo period "shougun" Lords took many men without the procession from Edo and visited. It is a this Magome-Juku (magomeshuku) in Gifu Prefecture in the nakasen-do big name places (called the base). I felt not saved at that time remains in the effort. Also this base crowded with tourists as Fujimura Wisteria Village Memorial Hall.

  • It is a very attractive tourist place that beautifully situated and where the houses are beautiful. Windeltjes, there are nice restaurants and a nice museum. For us it was a starting point for a beautiful walk to Tsumago.

  • Beautiful little hotel in the area famous for its authentic look. Visiting this place is a great chance to experience staying in a Japanese traditional hotel. Friendly and helpful staff, fluently speak English. There is a lovely hiking routs to nearby villages.
  • We where really lucky as our wonderful super welcoming host put us in the front room which looked out over the water wheel. The dinner was extensive (maybe don't eat lunch or breakfast before you arrive) but the food highlight was breakfast with fresh cooked salmon. Such a stunning town and Magomechaya is perfectly located right in the centre.
  • Good Minshuku in the center of the nice post town of Magome. The food they serve is very nice. A staff member speaks perfectly English if your Japanese is as good as mine.
  • In may 2006 we stayed at this hotel. Very tradional japanese and very nice. The food was delicious and the price very reasonable. The environment is beautiful.
  • In three weeks it is our worst experience with a very high compared to the quality of the delivery price. Clean and simple room. Book online but no information on the possibility of dinner on the spot. Except that upon our arrival in the village, we realized that all the restaurants were closed the evening except that of our accommodation but no possibility to dinner without a reservation. Fortunately the convenience store that closes at 5.30 pm allowed us to buy what eating and dining in the common room. The home is very limited and expeditious. Morning for breakfast it is limited the army where at 7:31 on toque at your door because you're not at the bottom. Breakfast poor and very expensive Japanese also and the coffee is paid! The common bathroom is clean and fairly antiquated limit. We made the Ryokan for the same price with a quality much better service.
