We started the day early with a train ride to Nagiso and were rewarded with some scenic ride (thanks to a brief snowing yesterday). 

Did a brief shopping in the Magome juku.

Before walking a section of the Nakasendo way from Magome juku to Tsumago juku. We experienced old trails.

Bridges and streams.

And a river.

And then took a break in a teahouse with fellow trekkers.

Upon reaching the Tsumago juku, we helped ourselves with some local delicacies.

Including ice cream, before continuing our walk to the train station.

We posed at someone’s garden.

And completed the 11 km walk with a swing at a playground near the train station.
