Customized Nakasendo trail tours from Nagoya

Hiking the Nakasendo Trail (Nakasendo Way) between Tsumago-juku and Magome-juku is a good way to spend your time. Part of the route remains exactly the same way it was in the old days. Slip back in the times of the Edo period.

For the information about Tsumago-juku and Magome-juku please see here.

There are many spots to see around along the Nakasendo Trail including the villages with the late Edo period architecture, waterfall, refined resting area, and a lot more. Walking through the forest while listening to the sound of the river flowing along would be just perfect.

Total length of the hiking course is 9 kilometers, and would take around 3 hours to complete. It is easier to walk from Magome to Tsumago. Starting point is the observation deck of Magome-juku. If there is snow, you may need considerably longer hours. So please be prepared if you like to walk Nakasendo Way in winter.
