Tsumago is a second post town from south, next to Magome. This town is the most famous that best preserved post town in Japan. We had little rain in late afternoon, I felt rainy day is also nice in Tsumago. Please enjoy below phots  I think you feel as if you had been transported through time to the Edo period.
