中山道

Path Up

I walked along 8km of the Nakasendo, or old highway between Kyoto and Tokyo. (If you want that in American units, use Google)

I started in Tsumago, and ended in Magome. I had to take a bus to and from those cities, since it is a ways off the Chuo line, hence the preserved state of the area.


I started out in Tsumago:

Walked past a fake horse:

Past a view that really reminded me of home:

Waterfalls:

And had a little snack in a rest area:
Free Rest Building
This place was pretty cool. Open even in January, it is “free”, although there is a donation thing in the middle of the table. The guy served me green tea, umeshu, and a little bit of food. It was a tad smoky(wood smoke) in the room, and not very warm. This was about 3 km from Magome.

All of the pictures from that day are here
