My hiking tour through the Kiso Valley in the Nagano Prefecture was a great experience. I saw remote villages, wild nature, beautiful mountains and met friendly people. As you can see I was not the only one enjoying the scenery. These painters were so lost in the moment they did not even notice me standing there and taking a picture. If you would like to follow my footsteps I went from Narai to Tsumago to Magome along the famous Nakasendo Route.
