Practical Info

The Nakasendo Trail is an easy to moderate hike. The trail takes about two to three hours to complete in each direction. To start the hike, make your way to either of the villages: Tsumago or Magome. To access either town from Kyoto, take the Tokaido Shinkansen from Kyoto to Nagoya and transfer to the JR Shinano limited express train to the Kiso Valley. From there, take the JR Shinano limited express to Nakatsugawa Station to reach Magoma, or exit at Nagiso Station for Tsumago. From the stations, take a short taxi or bus ride to reach the towns. The journey from Kyoto takes about 90 minutes.
