The walk between Tsumago and Magome along the ancient Samurai route is one of the most scenic in the whole of Japan.
The walk takes around 3 hours and takes you through some stunning scenery, forest trails and rarely visited traditional small villages. The walk is moderate with a few steep uphill climbs but is generally suitable for most people.
You can send your luggage on to Magome from Tsumago at the local tourist information centre so you do not need to take it with you. A nominal fee is charged locally for this service. You will need to take some water with you as there are not many shops along the route.
On arrival in Magome collect your bags and take the local bus to the Shinkansen train station and on to your next destination.
