Publisher's Comments

This travelogue takes general readers on a journey to appreciate the history and natural beauty of a popular tourist destination called Kiso Road, a trading and military road used for several thousand years in the Kiso Valley of the Japanese Alps. The author explores the art, cuisine, architecture, and local culture of the 11 towns on the route, with special focus on finding traces of the poets, philosophers, and priests who have walked the road.
