Magome Post Town

Magome Post Town

Magome is one of the sixty nine post towns that existed on the Nakasendo, an old highway that connected Edo (present day Tokyo) to Kyoto. This post town in the Kiso Valley was restored with a beautiful stone walkway surrounded with cared for foliage. It has great views of the nearby Mount Ena amongst a row old traditional homes that are lined up on a curved slope. The Honji, the main inn for government officials back in the day, doubles as the Toson Memorial Museum. Toson Shimazaki was a famed Japanese fiction writer under the name Haruki Shimazaki. Above a souvenir shop and restaurant is the Tsuchimaya Shiryokan, a small museum displaying items of Toson’s family. The Shimizuya Shiryokan is another small museum displays hanging scrolls, clothing, pottery, and other articles that once belonged to former residents of Magome.
