Do you know Magome-juku?
This is a post town that was used in the Edo period.
The remnants of the old post town remain.
Magome-juku is located in Nakatsugawa City, Gifu Prefecture.
Gifu Prefecture is the prefecture next to Aichi Prefecture where Nagoya City is located.
This time, I will introduce you to this Magome-juku!
Walk around Magome-juku
I came to Magome-juku on Nakasendo. The departure was slow, so I arrived at noon. It seems to enter Magome-juku from here.
Delicious dango that I found right away.
There are souvenirs, foods and so on in Magome-juku.
Magome-juku is on a steep slope.
Speaking of famous tourist spots in Japan, there are Kyoto and Takayama, but there are no such steep slopes.
It is a very rare type of old Japanese street among the old streets that remain today.
It’s a big watermill.
Looking back, the lush mountains looked beautiful. I wonder if the old people looked at the scenery like this and took a breath here.
There are still inns where you can stay.
By the way, there was a guesthouse called “MAGOME CHAYA”.
You can buy even one. There were rice crackers such as soy sauce, salt, chili and green seaweed.
Tourist information center and toilet. There was also a bench where we could take a break.
Water is flowing along the road.
This is the final point of Magome-juku.
The scenery of the mountains was very beautiful.
