Magome-juku, Nakatsugawa

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. Using our custom trip planner, Nakatsugawa attractions like Magome-juku can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • It is a small town surrounded by mountains with houses from the Edo period. Very pretty, to walk slowly and not to Miss details of the various houses, today most business. The village has a few blocks, ideal passes to be noon. We got a noon, we slept there, and the next day we visited another of those towns, Tsumago. Comfortable shoes to fill, streets are always on a slope.

  • "Middle Hill Road" to connect east and Kyoto, there are many city stations along the way, and there are currently a number of cage and cage breakfasts (magome-juku/まごめじゅく) in the Japanese Edo era. The cage was a fire in 1895 and 1915, The whole old street, in addition to the central stone ladder and the 枡-shaped pass, the rest is the reconstruction of the original, the Stone Road two side is a lattice window of the house, Information Library, tea houses, soil shops, etc., so that people seem to be in the Japanese Edo time 櫛 than scales buildings.
