    My wife and I had a private guide that met us at the hotel and did about an 11 KM walk starting from Magome. Very lovely old Japanese villages along the way and a nice and gentle experience of the Nakasendo trail which links Kyoto to Tokyo.

    We visited here in mid April when the cherry blossoms were just past their peak (lots of blooms and petals falling like snow). The entire hillside was covered in forests of cherry blossoms when you walk up the hill from the lower car park.

    Great views of the entire valley.

    Amazing hike and we loved each of the sceneries. We met some lovely people on the way to the hike. You can stop and take amazing photos.

    We started up here before walking down to Magome-juku. It is a short walk up the street and here you get a very scenic view of Mount Edna and Magome-juku.

    Magome got discovered by the travel agency with whom we make this wonderful Japan voyage in blooming April. The tourist info-desk provides all you need to discover the stunning Japanese alps.

    When you arrive at Magome by bus, the first thing you remark is this big waterwheel. Because of its location, many people take pictures with this. It is like a symbol of Magome.

    A good place to get information on bus timetables and where to catch the bus to Magome for the Nakasendo way walk. The staff are very helpful and speak good English. The bus stop for Magome is in front of the tourist information.

    Japan is always about the people and the interaction with them, regardless of whether you speak Japanese or not. We stayed at Eishoji for a night having walked part of the Nakasendo. We three were the only guests that evening. (When I booked the accommodation I had completely overlooked the fact that my HK Chinese friend might not appreciate sleeping surrounded by gravestones but she coped!)

    Two newly added rooms at the rear of the property were quiet and good quality with new toilet facilities. The bathroom was basic and shared with the family. Other rooms were also available but were older. Food was simple and uncomplicated as you would expect in a Buddhist temple.

    The monk and his wife were typical Japanese hosts - warm and friendly and we enjoyed the tranquility of the temple and its location just slightly off the main thoroughfare.

    The temple is not high end accommodation but a lovely respite from all those other tourists! It’s worth a visit.
