We did the full hike from Nakatsugawa to Tsumago via Magome. The first 4-5km were all on roads in built up areas and not really worth doing, but then the paved area around Ociaigawa was very pretty. The best section was Magome to Tsumago where you go through woods with beautiful rivers and bamboo, really beautiful with the sunlight coming through the trees. The two villages are very pretty and traditional too. I’d probably stick to the recommendation of getting the bus to Magome rather than walking next time as the first part was nowhere near as nice as the second.

We walked from Nakatsugawa Station to Magome, but up to the first paved steps in Ochiai isn’t great but is pretty from the Ochiai steps to Magome. More of a walk than a hike.

Lovely short hike at altitude, nice viewpoints and well maintained. A little more buggy than we expected. The lodge is a nice place to stop for a bite before continuing on or heading back.

We were unfortunate to have gone up on a rainy day early June. The view is mostly shrouded by clouds, so you can’t see the mountains. The path was partly covered by snow and mud which makes it slightly challenging (esp with wrong shoes), but nonetheless a good climb. About 2 hours up, and an hour down.

Nothing to add to the previous description. Definitely an awesome day-hike. I would love to do it again during the Spring or Fall for the colors.
