From figures as great as daimyo lords and princesses,
to travelers and poets,
the traces of those who traversed these post towns remain.
The distinctive livelihoods of the people of Kisoji,
and their many traditions
that have been carried on to today.
The lush forests protected by the people,
the beautiful banks enriched by the trees,
and the majestic mountains that encompass them and all of Kiso.
