Gifu part two: Tsumagoshuku


After we visited Magome juku, we went to another town on the Nakasendo: Tsumago. It was so beautiful. As we visited pretty late in the day, there weren't many people there. I'd love to see it when it is lively during the daytime too, but the quiet early evening made it pretty atmospheric. The mist added to that too. It gets dark pretty early in winter in Japan, so by the time we visited it was getting dark.
See what I mean about not many people there? 


Apparently if these lanterns are lit, it means there is a Yokai nearby...
The really manicured trees look really cute to me, like they have been taken straight from a child's drawing.





More fruits drying. I really love the picture below:
We also found this Meiji era post box:

It reads "Tsumago Yuubinkyoku" (Tsumago Post Office)
I think Tsumagoshuku, like Magomeshuku, is accessible via hiking or taking the train and then a bus. So you can get there even if you aren't driving. If you get a chance, it's a lovely place to visit!
Thanks for reading!
