About
Nakasendo was formerly known as the Higashisendo and connects Kyoto and the eastern provinces including present day Tokyo. It was one of five highways created within a 7 year period from 1601 along with the Tokaido, Nikko, Oshu, and Koshu. This tour is a 5 hour mountain trail walk that traverses along a 9km trail that connects the two most beautiful post towns along the Nakasendo - Magome-Juku and Tsumago-Juku. Both towns still retain their medieval flare. Your guide will show you the commercial town in the Tono region that flourished when the highway was active. From cobbled roads going through Magome-Juku, the view of Mt. Ena, a quaint teahouse on a mountain pass, and beautiful mountain village scenery around Tsumago-Juku, there is no doubt that you will feel like you've been transported back to medieval Japan.

Magome and Tsumago are two post towns on the old walking trail, known as Nakasendo, connecting Tokyo and Kyoto. We happened to be travelling late July 2020, when COVID kept most tourists away so we got to enjoy the both the historical and natural aspects of the journey in solitude not typical to Japan.
One of the best trips of summer 2020: you get a glimpse into more traditional Japan. We walked in Aug and it was quite hot so we skipped the trip to Tsumago town museum, regretfully. Tsumago is a very special town and trip to the museum is a good place to be introduced to its history.
We walked with Harumoto-san and we found him to be very pleasant, knowledgeable and quite tactful. He would field our questions when needed and he would step aside when one of our children wanted to take centerstage.
I would highly recommend this trip, especially in spring or autumn.

I booked this tour for my family...12 person from 5 years old to 72 years old. It was an amazing experience. Our tour guide : Moto-san is an angel....good english and very informative about Kiso Valley....we start from Takayama around 9.00 am....the scenery along the way were amazing. Hope we had more time to explore more in Narai and Magome.
