Morning in Tsumago, a Nakasendo Post-Town

26 May 2016

The best time to take any photos is in the morning, especially so when visiting the old post town of Tsumago. I was happy we had time to explore Tsumago in the morning before catching the 10.19 AM train from the nearby Nagiso Station.

I was amazed by the colours of these roses
House swifts nesting under the roofs of the old houses were a common sight
