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.

I've been here before, and was just as pleased this time as last! The location is certainly out of the way (taxi from station to get there), but the seclusion is perfect for a breather from the city. Very close to the Nakasendo trail (about a 20 minute walk to Magome and well worth it! Only rated slightly down in location as it's quite far from the train station and not easy to access without a car or taxi. Also note the owner can speak a little English, but Japanese will help.

We enjoyed our stay greatly! We were very warmly welcomed and the food was good. It is a smaller place with a personal atmosphere. It's not the easiest place to reach, but it is a great location to start your walk to Tsumago-juku.

Atención muy amable a pesar de la barrera idiomática (no hablan mucho inglés). Linda vista de montañas. Ubicación cómoda para empezar Nakasendo en Ochiai. Fue difícil comunicarse por correo antes de llegar. No tan cómodo para llegar con valijas: desde el bus más cercano caminar 20 minutos en subida. Desde tren Ochiaigawa la caminata es más difícil. No tiene acceso a cocina, ni un ambiente joven para hacer sociales como otros hostels. No tiene cajas de seguridad, pero eso en Japón es muy común.
