Welcome to Kiso-Fukushima. Kiso-Fukushima is a beautiful little town in Nagano Prefecture, central Honshu, on the railway line between Nagoya and Matsumoto. Kiso-Fukushima is located on the historic Edo Period Nakasendo highway linking Kyoto and Edo (Tokyo). Kiso-Fukushima was an important check-point on the Nakasendo and its historic sekisho, or barrier station, is one of only two on the route. Kiso-Fukushima is located about directly half-way on the Nakasendo from Edo (Tokyo) to Kyoto.
An alternative to Kiso-Fukushima is Narai.
