The 8 day tour starts from the ultra-modern Tokyo to Kyoto through the Kiso Valley of Nagano connecting with the old post towns on the former road between both cities used in the Edo period.
This old arterial NAKASENDO path swings by the city of Matsumoto which has a famous castle built in the 16th century. Kisoji is a part of Nakasendo Road connecting Edo (present day Tokyo) and Kyoto for 530km.
Tsumago and Magome are the stage towns on this road. Various elements such as historical, cultural, and natural sites including folklore are inherited along this road, which acts as a meditation between generations.
