Kiso Valley by Bus 2019/11/5 23:27
Hello, Ifm going to be going to the cities of Tsumago and Magome in five months and I was wondering if the bus services going from Nagiso to Tsumago, Tsumago to Magome and Magome to Nakatsugawa offered english services (staff, destination, signalling) and I was also wondering where they stopped in the cities.

Thank you!

No, you should not expect any English services. The buses seem to have some English on their sign, though:

There is no English available once on the bus, but it's fairly clear when Magome and Tsumago have been reached . Just listen for the stop announcement and get off when you hear the right name (and probably where a lot of other tourists get off!). There is a tourist information office in Nagiso which has some English pamphlets.

Let's also be clear that neither Magome or Tsumago are cities. The are both small villages so it is fairly obvious when you have arrived there.
