What people are saying:

Heard of "sukuba Cho"? In the Edo period, people had to walk or walk because they had not developed transportation. Along the intersection of nakasen do road or Tokaido, there were many towns that flourished because of the accommodation station called "sukuba Cho." Tokaido has established 53 lodgings from Shinagawa (Tokyo) to Otsu (Shiga Prefecture) and is known as Tokaido 53rd. Several lodgings have been preserved and are deeply appealing to tourists. This time, the "horse cage lodging" and "wife cage lodging" of Nakayama do road are introduced. The horse cage lodging in Gifu Prefecture is also called Tsumago lodging in Nagano Prefecture, because it is well preserved and enjoys the traditional Japanese flavor. On the sides of the steep slope of the main street of Malong, which is about 600 meters long, there are old wooden houses, strolling through the slate slopes, teahouses and local shops on both sides, as if to come to another nostalgic world. The distance between the horse cage and the wife cage is not far. There are buses in the middle. Don't miss 2! The wife cage is a place that preserves the street style of the Edo period and is the first designated preservation area of the important traditional building group of the country. The wife cage lodging is also operated by many after the construction, and many tourists choose to live here for one night. It is said that the night's wife cage lodging is a completely different atmosphere. Transportation Notes: JR Nagoya station, JR Chuo main line limited Express train to JR Nakatsugawa station or JR Minami Kiso station, transfer bus to umagajuku or tsumagajuku.

    A tiny tourist office but very useful in that they will transport luggage from Magome to Tsumago while you walk between each town. It's a beautiful walk
