-NEW- Nakasendo Trail and Old Post Towns in Autumn (5 days)

Japan Tour Description

Nakasendo is an old trail constructed 400 years ago by the Tokugawa Shogunate as one of the major routes between Edo (Tokyo now) and Kyoto. It was a long route, the total length was 526 km with 69 post towns in between. Because of the construction of the new highways and freeways, most of the route disappeared or covered with the concrete, but the part in Nagano and Gifu prefectures still remains as of feudal time because of the location in the mountains. You may see the unique rural scenery in autumn such as harvesting rice and changing color of the leaves. Followings are the special features of the tour.

1. We visit 3 of the most well preserved post towns; Narai, Tsumago and Magome.

2. We visit the well preserved part of Nakasendo Trail. On the route, you walk through the forest, see waterfalls and idyllic rural life with rice and vegetable fields.
