"The country of Shinano is a country that is bounded by the city of Zhuzhou, the mountains are rather high and the river that is expensive is rather distant"
(Established 43 month of Showa 5 year)

This is a passage at the beginning of the prefectural song "Shinano no kuni" which Nagano prefecture loves. This year is the anniversary of establishing the 50 anniversary from enactment. As in the lyrics, Nagano prefecture is tying up with ten neighboring countries (present 8 prefecture) and Takayama with the long river.
Shinshu is a mountain country. A road over a steep pass and a river with a difficult point key point have been used as an important transportation route for Nagano Prefecture without the sea. In the Edo era, an innumerable place to heal the tiredness of travelers was established and formed in various places at the foot of the pass. The remnant is a road shape in the pass, and it is a station town which connects eaves. Such a way of history can be said as the origin that formed the present Nagano prefecture. In Nagano Prefecture, in order to grasp the current situation of the regional roads, and to consider its protection and utilization, we published 54 volumes of history research report by Heisei 8 year by Heisei 28 year from "Nakasendo" in Showa XNUMX year. And a part of Nagiso town and Nagato town is designated as a historical site Nakasendo, it is protected.
Moreover, it is not only to protect the way of history carefully, it can be said that it is a dynamic thing that we can walk, feel, and feel. History road walking and lodging events were held in various places including the prefecture's 8 station that the country joined in "Historical Way Hundred Selections" selected by the country in Heisei 4 year, not only the local residents but also domestic and foreign tourism It is utilized as a place for customers to walk and walk in Shinshu's way.
On the other hand, the development of high-speed transportation networks and bypass roads has progressed, the appearance of people traveling between familiar roads and old-fashioned cityscapes has decreased, and the vibrancy of the area is being lost.
This meeting will deepen the training of related people in the whole country to deal with historical road related projects through memorial lectures, reports on case studies on how to engage and utilize the charm of history roads and Nakasendo walking, exchange information such as efforts in various places . Also, by opening to the public widely, it is an opportunity to rediscover the charm of the old road that is buried in the area and is likely to be forgotten.
