Fair too touristy and was full of schoolkids all the time on trips there. Nothing worth seeing at all.

Nice pleasant old town, great for a day trip and to have lunch From the 3 famous old towns of the Kiso-valley, this one is ranked number 2 for me. Very beautiful, plenty of places to eat lunch.

I love Magomejuku more than Tsumagojuku. The shops and view in Magonejuku is better. There also has a parking fee for 500 Yen but there is no parking fee at Magomejuku.
