My family of 3 is planning to walk some parts of the Nakasendo ways in late March. We will stay in Minshuku or Ryokan at different towns in Magome, Tsumago, Kiso-Fukushima and Narai. Can you advise if there is any luggage transfer services between towns / Ryokan available so we can walk with only light bag pack? Many thanks!Kayin

Hi Kayin, My name is Blair Guardia with the Nagano prefecture tourism department. Luggage delivery service is offered between Magome and Tsumago post towns because the walk between them is very popular. I don\’t think that similar services are available between other areas, so I would recommend traveling with your luggage by train. You can ask at your ryokan and they may have a special service available. For Magome/Tsumago, you can drop your luggage off at the Tourism Information center between 8:30 and 11:30, and it will arrive at the Tourism Information center at your destination between 13:00 and 17:00 on the same day. Each piece of luggage costs 500 yen to deliver. I hope that helps answer your question! -Blair
