Walking The Nakasendo

Nakatsugawa-juku to Magome-juku

Before highways and the train system, one way people traveled from Kyoto to Edo (modern day Tokyo) was via the Nakasendo; a road that went through the center of Japan. Over 100 years later, you can still walk the Nakasendo. A popular hike is on a section between Nakatsugawa-juku in modern day Nakatsugawa City and the mountain top village of Magome. This 3 hour hike includes a preserved section of the cobblestone road.
