Magome-juku, Nakatsugawa
(4/5 based on 220+ 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. Before you head to Nakatsugawa, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Nakatsugawa vacation route planner, to make sure you see all that Nakatsugawa has to offer, including Magome-juku.

  • If you have limited time and want to have a quick idea of what a historical post town in Edo Japan would have looked like, then Magome would probably fit the bill. It is undoubtedly a beautiful histor...  more »
  • I was impressed by your accommodation during the Edo period in the appearance at that time. Diners enjoyed and chatter is going. The return went on quite a slope, as has a little leg.

  • Or visit after the rain pass, Moya took was fantastic. People coming and car engine problems on the way, arrived while the yarns (laughs) car sounds come out of maintenance.

  • 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.
