“Charming village, less crowded and touristy than Tsumago”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

Beautiful village, a great base for hiking the Nakasendo Walking Trail to Tsumago, and a quieter place to stay. There is a bus back to Magome for one-way hiking. Each direction is up-and-down, as their is a mountain pass between the villages.
Be sure to pick up a trail guide (in English) at the information office next to the bus stop at the Nakatsugama train station.

“A pleasant village, and paved street which meanders down the hillside”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

Magome is situated at the southern most part of the eleven post towns of the Kiso district and has a sunny, open hillside location with pleasant views to the distant mountains and Nakatsugawa city on the plain in the far distance. Two miles further south of the town is a one kilometre section of the old stone pavement which is worth a visit if time does permit the walk along the popular Nakasendo Highway section between Tsumago and Magome
