Magome-juku, Nakatsugawa

(4/5 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.

  • Coaching from the Edo period. Well-preserved village with typical houses, where now are Ryokans and rather discreet and rather high quality tourist shops and restaurants. From here you can walk 8 km to the village of Tsumago (old post office), but rather walk for experienced (1.5 2 hours, about 200 metres). Dear Kumano Kodo pilgrimage route in Kii Peninsula go to hiking and nature experience. Houses in Magome are similar in Takayama, but quiet. Views of mountains is great. Bus connection from Nakatsugawa station and Tsumago/Nagiso is relatively expensive.

  • On a steep hill lined served food shops and souvenir shops. It was beautiful scenery. Higher food prices? Slope quite so severe in the elderly? In the distance is short.

  • Nakasendo hiking trails available. Magome station parking lot (free) at the car and bus (few days runs the Magome-tsumago ¥ 600) available to tsumago-Juku. From there is about 9 km, about 2 hours and a half course. Courses are well maintained, on the way in several places and toilets (Western toilet), sitting room, dining room. Is truly easy to walk the old highway. No signpost or worry about clean and solid. In the offices of each accommodation can get map. There is also a baggage transportation service. I walked from tsumago, Magome walk more moderate climb to the pass. Was the end of April or the cherry blossom season. Light half-day hike is recommended.
