... beautiful and varied hike from Tsumago to Nojiri. There is an alternative option with just 1 hour of walking instead. The trail travels through small valleys and past forests of bamboo and Japanese cedar, through some of the least-developed scenery on the tour. Continue by train to Kiso-Fukushima.
