Day 2 - Nakasendo Walking Trail (Tsumago - Kiso Fukishima)
Nakasendo Walking Trail, Japan
Today you have two options for your route, either a 1-2 hour trek from Tsumago to Nagiso and from there a train to Kiso Fukushima. Alternatively, opt for a longer trek from Tsumago to Nojiri. You can decide on the way depending on the weather.
Start today by leaving the delightful town of Tsumago. Head through small valleys and through pine forests before reaching Nagiso. From here you can catch the train to Kiso Fukushima where your accommodation is located.
Alternatively start a little earlier and walk from Tsumago to Nagiso and continue onto Nojiri. This will take about 6 hours in total. From here you can catch a train to Kiso Fukushima. The longer journey is beautiful and takes you through fields, small settlements and dirt trails.
