If you want to travel back to Japan hundreds of years ago and walk through the historic post towns, you should go to Magome (Gifu Prefecture) and Tsumago (Nagano Prefecture) in the mountainous areas of central Honshu. Magome and Tsumago retain the atmosphere of former post towns. You can stay at the old inns. If you walk 9 kilometers between Magome and Tsumago, you can experience the world of Japanese ukiyo-e (old paintings)!
