View of Mount Ena from Magome

Another post resulting from my searching the web for interesting photos of the places that we will be visiting during our September trip. Have a look for a gallery of photos of Magome in the Kiso Valley that caught my eye here.

Magome is part of the Nakasendō (中山道) which was one of the five routes of the Edo period, and one of the two that connected Edo (modern-day Tokyo) to Kyoto. The most famous remaining section of the original stone paved road lies between Magome and Tsumago and we will take the walk between these two towns.
