Bus trip to former lodging towns of Magome & Tsumago via Nakasendo (Samurai Road) 
Magome and Tsumago are former lodging towns along the Nakasendo path that once connected Kyoto and Tokyo. These are beautiful towns that still deeply reflect the memories of the lodging areas of the Edo period. The 9 kilometer trail has been well preserved over time, with numerous traditional wooden houses, cobblestone streets, tea shops and nostalgic agricultural areas along the path. 
The trail is relatively gentle and a spectacular natural landscape view of Ena mountain range and waterfalls can be enjoyed. It takes around 3 hours to walk at a leisurely pace. Magome and Tsumago are just 2.5 hours away from Takayama, why not spend a day to free yourself from the hustle and bustle of a city and experience the lives of samurai at the old times.
