Itinerary

1Departure from Nagoya Station

Meeting point at Nagoya Tourists Center information.

2Magome

Visit Magome post town, a town on a sloped area that stretches for about 600 meters. The road is paved with stones and lined with houses that evoke the richness of Japan’s history. Take a stroll around Magome where visitors will find a large waterwheel, old Japanese folk houses, historical stone monuments, and more. Be guided around the temple lodging next to the Zen temple’s main hall. Enjoy some matcha green tea and traditional Japanese sweets. (Tea and sweets may be unavailable if the temple is closed)

3Nakasendo Trail

The trail between Magome and Tsumago is a well-maintained section of the former Nakasendo, the route that ran along the Kiso Valley and connected Tokyo with Kyoto during the Edo Period. The trail leads through the forest and countryside and, in parts, passes right alongside the houses and fields of local residents.

4Tsumago and Nagisomachi museum

Tsumago is Japan’s first post town to preserve its district, creating an area that has seemingly stopped in time 400 years ago. Head to the Nagisomachi Museum (Tsumago-juku Honjin & Waki Honjin Okuya). Honjin, the post town’s main inn, is where the feudal lords and other people of high status stayed in the past. Enjoy free time before departure back to Nagoya.
