BACK TO EDO - FEEL JAPAN 1700'S A.D. M-6
(TOKYO, MATSUMOTO, TSUMAGO, MAGOME, KYOTO 8-DAYS)

You have probably heard about Tsumago & Magome, but not yet well known because of its location in Kiso Valley of Nagano, the most mountainous terrain in Japan.
These old post towns on the former road connecting Tokyo and Kyoto in the Edo period are protected and preserved with attractive walking trail.
The tour starts from Tokyo to Kyoto through by Nagano just like this old arterial NAKASENDO path swing by the city Matsumoto where you will find one of the famous castle built in the 16 century and declared as National Treasure.
Please take this opportunity and enjoy the journey of the historical and beautiful thickly forested sites of Japan

Kisoji - Tsumago, Magome

Kisoji is a part of Nakasendo Road, road connecting Edo (present day Tokyo) and Kyoto for 530km. Tsumago and Magome are the Stage-Towns on this road. Various
elements such as historical, cultural, and natural sights including folklore are inherited along this road, which acts as a mediation between generation.
