If you like climbing a hill, this is the place for you. Many souvenir shops and ryokan. Hike between Magome and Tsumago on the old Nakasen-Do, take the expensive bus back.

Magome is more polished than Tsugome with beautiful buildings and views. Well worth a visit and so glad I stayed overnight! Soooo, quiet.

A beautiful restored town. Great place to have lunch and see the view around. Shops are closing very early, nothing to do, see or eat around at night. From the 3 famous old towns of the Kiso-valley, this one is ranked number 3 for me.
