#馬頤宿中山古道 is one of the five main roads developed during the Edo period in Japan. It connects Nihonbashi in Edo (now Tokyo) with Sanjo Avenue in Kyoto. This old road is also known as "Nakasendo", "Nakasendo", "Kiso Street", and "Muso Road". The total length is 507.7 km, spanning Tokyo, Saitama, Gunma, Nagano, Gifu, Shiga and Kyoto. There are 67 dorms in the middle (called inn in Chinese). Among them, Narajingju, Tsumagoju, Majuju, Akaiju, and Kusatsuju are the most popular inns. A few years ago, I went to Nara Jingju, this time I came to Magomju. Although it is raining in Tiangong, it does not affect the interest of traveling. Walking on the ancient streets feels like returning to the distant ancient times. Here are six photos for your reference.
worth going! Very local characteristics! Snacks are also good! The bathroom is very clean!
For a day trip around Nagoya, I chose Majujujujukujuku. At the ticket center on the third floor of Meitetsu Bus Station, I bought a ticket for the Sakata Line to go directly to Malong. I left Nagoya in the morning and went directly to Malong. Follow the instructions to walk to the Malongsu scenic area. It's really embarrassing now. Most of the snow has melted, the temperature is not high, and most stores are closed. The Taiwan tour group brought a group of people over, which seemed to be a bit lively, and left in about 20 minutes. The town was calm again. I bought a walking certificate at the visitor center and planned to walk to the wife cage. Ma Long Su is built on top of a mountain, layered on top of each other. If you like to take pictures, it is a good place. Walk 7.8 kilometers to Tsumago-juku. There were a lot of uphill roads about the first 3 kilometers on this road, and it was a bit panting. Later, when I walked to a rest station, local elderly people were on duty here spontaneously to provide convenience for tourists. We took a rest. It was an old-fashioned house, and the walls were covered with tourist information and pictures of tourists. There are also rooms for rest. There is also a wood-burning stove. The old man asked where we came from, carefully noted in the notebook, and cut us local radishes, poured a pot of tea, and filled the stove with a piece of wood. There is also a guestbook on the table. Many people have written their thoughts on it. Look at how many waves of people have come before us today. We took a break, stuffed some money in the donation box, and left. The road behind is mainly downhill. It's relatively labor-saving, but it's the damn season. There is ice on the road and it's slippery, so be careful when you walk. A few paragraphs are somewhat dangerous. Fortunately, we all wore snow boots. There are many bells along the way to drive away bears. I don't know if there are really bears. Because this section of the trekking trail is a section of the mountain and a section of the highway, such an over-developed place. Will there still be bears? The directions in Japan are well done, and there must be signs at intersections with slight forks. So will not get lost. Several foreigners met along the way. The Japanese seem to like to walk here in spring. Finally, I walked to the wife cage. The place is the same as the horse cage. Many shops are closed when it is not time to travel. However, the wife's cage is larger and flatter than the horse cage. Stamping at the visitor center in Tsumago was considered as completing the walk, and then taking a rest. After a good time, I boarded the bus to Minami Kiso Station and bought a ticket back to Nagoya. I was a little tired, so I bought an express ticket and went back to rest early. The whole journey would take about 2 and a half hours if the rest stop time was removed. There is a station when walking on the highway. If you can’t walk, you can take a bus, but there are very few buses there. If you miss it, you may have to wait for half a day. There are still surprises in the journey, and the right season must be chosen. And don’t go alone, in case something happens, there is a helper. All the money on this route was spent on traffic, and there was basically no spending there. I bought a steamed bun, which tastes really bad. I bought something to eat in Lawson in Nagoya and put it in my bag.
Magongju is the remains of an ancient post road in Gifu, Japan. It has been burnt down by two fires. The whole old street in Magongju, except for the stone stairs and pass in the center, was rebuilt later. Fortunately, the old street buildings next to the slate ramp have basically remained the same as in the Edo period.
The terrain of the Malongsu is steep and the roads are difficult to navigate. In ancient times, when travelers came here, it was difficult for horses to cross the steep mountain roads. They had to leave their horses at the inn, hence the name Malongsu.
Strolling in Magongsu, climbing on steep slate steps, and admiring ancient villages, exquisite buildings, historic small inns, streams of water in every house, and exquisite bonsais, the mood is still very pleasant . Especially climbing up to the highest point of the village, looking out over the distant mountains, full of green, blooming flowers, this scenic spot on this trip is still worth visiting!
Malongju and Tsumagoju choose one, and then came here, the weather is not very good, the wind is very strong and a bit cold. The old streets here are still very shopping. They are all hundreds of years old, very clean and full of life. Much better than the domestic attractions that close their doors and collect tickets.
