Kisoji starts northward from this stone monument. Each post town along Kisoji still has houses that retain the atmosphere of the Edo period, and you can feel the unique atmosphere of a time slip to the Edo period. The attraction of Kisoji is not limited to each post town. Kisoji is a way in the valleys of the mountains, so you can see the wonderful views of the mountains while walking.

Kisoji Walking Route Guide

You can get a brochure called "SINSYU KISOJI NAKASENDO WALKING MAP" issued by Kiso Tourist Federation at the tourist information center of each post town along Kisoji. On the basis of the brochure, I wrote the articles that show you the way with the pictures taken by me while walking along Kisoji. If you walk along Kisoji by checking out only the brochure, you might take the wrong way. By checking out the following articles, you can walk along Kisoji without taking the wrong way.
