Tsumago-juku - Old post town on Nakasendo road

Though Japan is full of historical places, it is difficult to find whole towns preserving old character—without traffic, cobweb of electrical cables or cheap prefabricated buildings.

One of places saved from such an excessive development is a small section of old Nakasendo road in Kiso Valley with two small post-towns of Magome-juku and Tsumago-juku.
