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.

  • You can stroll while enjoying the atmosphere of the old Nakasendo Road. Car pass down a gentle Hill Road is also not so easy to walk is a meal. Recommended for the rice cake was the most suitable.

  • Is the post town of Magome was visited many times, but I felt less tourists. I don't know if I think hard to climb the Hill because it is hot in summer. But 中国jinn saw much less, other countries. The teahouse near the Magome was stopped soon I want to move. Few tourists even shopkeepers didn't have somewhere. I think it has been using the bus this time, but there is parking at both good. It is fun walking slowly while you shop. It's even more fun for the flowers.

  • Near the watermill you can find the best barista in the neighborhood. Go and try one of their coffees.  more »
