I was walking behind Jochen when I saw this snake sitting in the middle of road sunbathing. Jochen did not notice and was so close to stepping on her...

Starting from Edo (Tokyo) and ending in Kyoto via Kiso Valley, Nakasendo was one of the oldest roads made in Japan’s Edo Period.  The section we chose is about 10 km – a good day walk – and passes two well-preserved old towns Magome and Tsumago in Kisoji.
