After leaving Matsumoto via train this morning, and after charging up on the region’s soba, I walked part (about seven miles) of the Nakasendo Trail, beginning in the pretty, tiny town of Magome, As you can see from the photos, it was a lovely walk. I’m also adding a few fun signs, including the unmentioned-by-the-tour-company bear warnings! Oh, and one of my self-portraits and tonight’s room.
Live all you can. It’s a mistake not to.
