Welcome to my page

I am an English guide

in charge of Magome-Tsumago Trail.

 

Below is the sightseeing spot I provide the guiding service.

 

Magome-Tsumago Trail is a nine-km path connecting Magome-juku and Tsumago-juku and one of the most popular hiking trails among tourists. In the Edo period, many daimyo processions, samurai warriors, farmers, merchants and others traveled through this mountain road surrounded by seasonal plants and flowers, clear-water streams, waterfalls and tall trees. How about tracing the same route as ancient people did, immersing in the atmosphere of the old times? I suggest you start Magome for Tsumago.

Access: There are Shinano Express and local trains from Nagoya to Nakatsugawa. Express and local trains from Nagano via Matsumoto and Shiojiri are also available.
Magome-juku is about 25-minute bus ride from Nakatsugawa station.
