Taken at Narai-juku, a postal town along the Kiso Road portion of the Nakasendo walking highway. The kids were playing in the stream and I asked if I could take their picture. I normally don't photograph children because it would look weird. However, the parents were nearby so I thought it would be okay. #narai#naraijuku#nagano#nakasendo#kisoji#奈良井宿#日本#中山道#長野
Unno-juku, Tomi City, Nagano Prefecture. A post town which connected the Nakasendo Road (an ancient road connecting Tokyo to Kyoto) and the Hokkokudo Road (Sea of Japan route). It dates back to 1625! Unlike some other post towns (Magome and Tsumago) it doesn't get many tourists - I took this photo on a Sunday afternoon!
