The Streets of the Edo Period and Picturesque Mountain Scenery

The Nakasando was one of the five major roads of the Edo Period that connected Edo [modern day Tokyo] to Kyoto. On these roads, there were two particularly popular rest stops along the way.  The paved streets of Magome (Nakatsugawa, Gifu) along with parts of the town from the Edo period remain to this day, as do the old buildings of Magome's sister town Tsumago, which is around two and a half hours away, on foot.
