Magome-juku, Nakatsugawa

(3.9/5 based on 240+ 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.

  • It is a place suitable for summer tourism in the summer. Good views, are firmly aligned with the access / Office and souvenir. By all means I want to eat Soba.

  • The whole town's Hill. Climb the whole thing quite physical strength is used. Parking is available both over and under, to stop me eventually climb is one way that (duh!). I went up to pick up the car but I was was elderly and so on to stop down at all the drivers. Views of ENA mountain from the observation deck at the top, weather permitting. Streets have been modernized somewhat, there is no quaint than next to tsumago, in it there is a difference between the high and low? Worth a look is.

  • Magome-Juku in Edo period village. Feel the heart even after the area was the birthplace of Toson Memorial Museum here, an entire village people entertain tourists. We will have to to be able to live at home in General. But tourism customer can care with Manor Care want to. So throughout the Magome, Gifu Prefecture's most crowded ever impressed.

  • Pricey but very reliable in terms of hospitality and knowledge of English. This is not a Ryokan which is an "inn" but rather a Minshuku which is more like a "B&B". Expect an authentic experience which includes minimal western comforts. The hosts are VERY nice and helpful and the village is gorgeous btw.
  • A confortable guest house. The dinner was traditional Japanese one and very healthy and delicious. The staff can speak English perfectly, you don't have to worry about it.
  • Delicious food and wonderful hosts who went above and beyond to be helpful and pleasant. Thanks for a great stay!
  • Very nice authentic Ryokan (Japanese hotel) and a beautiful location. All facilities are quite new and clean. The staff is friendly, helpful and fluent in English. One disadvantage is the price.
  • 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.
