Magome-Juku (Kiso Valley)
2015-08-06 3:19 pm
The third and last major post town alongside the Nakasendo Highway section of the Kiso Valley is Magome-Juku. Unlike Narai-Juku and Tsumago-Juku which are both located in Nagano , Magome-Juku is located in Gifu prefecture. It has also been completely restored to better accommodate tourists, but this makes Magome-Juku the least authentic post town of the three. Still it is definitively a place to stop in at if you are considering visiting the Kiso Valley.
Here as well you will find many ryokans and restaurants as well as the usual Honjin (tavern for officials) and Wakihonjin (tavern for the regular folks).
