The Nakasendo between Magome and Tsumago is an ancient historic route in Japan that offers an authentic experience of rural Japan. This picturesque stretch spans approximately 8 kilometers and provides a hiking trail through valleys, streams, and lush forests. The well-preserved villages of Magome and Tsumago allow visitors to immerse themselves in traditional Japanese life with narrow streets, wooden houses, and delicious local cuisine. It’s a journey back in time that offers a fascinating contrast to the modernity of Japan’s big cities.
