Old post town in a historic preservation area with important traditional buildings. There was a main road from Tokyo to Kyoto about three hundred years ago, its name Nakasendo, can be translated to "road through the central mountains". At that time, Japan was ruled by the Shogunate. If you were there, you would see samurai bearing katana, townspeople wearing simple kimonos and peasants selling their farm products. Travellers coming on foot stayed in the town to rest their weary feet. This important bustling town was Tsumago. Now the town has survived the modern day, inhabitants have saved its original atmosphere. VISIT MY WEBSITE http://www.joejourneys.com/passport/japan/tsumago.html http://www.joejourneys.com
