It was the first Post Town in Japan that preserved an old street and was selected as an 'Important Traditional Buildings Preservation District'.
Old buildings still remaining in the streets, glowing old lamps and springs to drink from remind you of old post towns. It seems as if the 'Edo period' is condensed and preserved in its entirety.
No Vehicle traffic is permitted within this Post Town so that you can stroll peacefully. At night Tsumago Post Town is illuminated with its lamps exhibiting nothing but the original scenery of Edo period Japan.
Tsumago Post Town, together with the neighboring Magome Post Town and the slope leading to Magome Post Town are renowned tourist spots representing the essence of Kisoji.
