Welcome to our hostel

KISOJI is the most mountainous section in Nakasendo, one of the 5 old main trade & travel route(*) in the Edo period (17-19 centuries). The section lies in the Kiso Valley, between Tsumago-juku in Nagano Prefecture and Magome-juku in Gifu Prefecture --- JUKU means an old posting station. Now it is famous for hiking course with beautiful seasonal flowers and traditional local festivals. FURUSATO means 'hometown'. We hope Kosoji Furusato YH will become your second home!

*The Edo Five Routes: Tokaido, Nakasendo, Koshu Kaido, Oshu Kaido and Nikko Kaido.

L'ostello è immerso nel verde, in un ambiente veramente unico, circondato da risaie e colline verdi. Titolare molto disponibile e affabile. Ci ha recuperato con la macchina alla fermata del bus. Colazione ricca ed abbondante. L'ostello è in un ottima posizione per intraprendere a piedi il percorso tsumago - magone. Il titolare è disponibile a dare tutte le info necessarie per il trek. Assolutamente consigliato!!

Loved the hostel and its staff but... The website quotes prices as "non-member prices" of 3500 yen so it was a shock that I was expected to pay 600 additional yen for each night when I arrived... Here is a screenshot of the site quoting non member price (in pink): an additional 600 yen/night more is expected upon arrival Change website to say "member price" so we know there is more payment expected from us non members
