We stayed here one night and at Hanaya the night after. They were both nice and located in greater Tsumago (near Otsumago bus stop - one of the buses doesn't quite go here but stops just at a bridge nearby). You wouldn't want to walk with luggage from Tsumago to here but it's a nice walk to the town and...

I stayed for one night, and travelled from Tokyo. I was hiking to magome to following day. I was travelling solo. Pros: I paid double the price for a ryokan in Magome and the room offered to me here at maruya was double the size, allowed me to check in early, were welcoming and warm - I paid more than...

My wife, 9 year old daughter and I stayed here for one night in early July after hiking the Nakasendo trail from Magome to Tsumago. Maruya Inn is a traditional ryokan with authentic detailing - irori fireplace, rice paper doors, tatami mats, etc. The washrooms are common but very clean. The host Yoko was so nice, she drove me to...

Our travel agent booked this authentic minshuku to give us a taste of the Japanese countryside. It lies on a hill just outside Tsumago on the famous trail to Magome. Rooms are simple, but good (even an air conditioner is available in some rooms, and necessary), the food is lovely. Three shared bathrooms for the whole place and two shower...

This place hasn't changed in centuries. That gave it a real charm. But it also meant there had been no improvements in say heating or draught exclusion and as a result was decidedly chilly. And if your tall you will find there are plenty of low beams waiting to catch you if ever you aren't fully concentrating. Most guests will...

We wanted to have a traditional ryokan experience and we also heard the food at this one was the best and it didn’t disappoint! If you are taking the bus from the Nagiso train station, be aware that it is a 25 minute walk if you get off at the first “Tsumago” bus stop. Get off at “Otsumago” just past...

This inn has shared facilities and a genuine feel to it. The paper walls, futons, and location help one feel as though you are actually on the ancient trail itself. The service and food could not be better (or fresher!) and the staff treated us very well.

Ok, so it's not actually in Tsumago (it's about a 15 minute walk up the hill), but it's along the route from Magome to Tsumago, which means that you can have your luggage forwarded there for you from either town. The rooms here are beautiful, with traditional painted screens, tatami mats and futons. Some even have a balcony, and from...

Not big minshuku (japanese style hotel with shared bath and toilet), only 5 or 6 simple tatami rooms. It is located on the Nakasendo road, a bit out of Tsumago village itself (10 min by foot approx). We with friends were the only guests and felt like we had a homestay. Watched some old photoalbums, chatted with owners (in japanese,...
