Kumano Nachi Taisha&Kumano Kodo Mini Walking(No Lunch)
City Tour, Naturalista, Lunch not included
On this tour, we will visit the highlights of the Kumano area.
Kumano Kodo refers to a network of pilgrimage trails through the southern Kansai region. The Kodo ("old ways") are a key part of the region's UNESCO designation, and have been in use for over a thousand years. The pilgrimage routes developed as a way for people to move between the sacred areas on the Kii Peninsula. At the centre of this religious area are the three Kumano shrines: Hongu Taisha, Hayatama Taisha and Nachi Taisha, collectively known as Kumano Sanzan. On this tour, you will enjoy a brisk walk to Kumano Nach Taisha Grand Shrine
Kumano Nachi Taisha Grand Shrine is one of the three shrines in Kumano, situated a few kilometres inland from the coastal hot spring resort of Katsuura. The shrine is part of a large complex of neighbouring religious sites that exemplify the fusion of Buddhist and Shinto influences that is particular to the Kumano region.
Nachi Falls (Nachi no Taki) is the tallest waterfall in Japan. It is located a short distance from Nachi Taisha and it is 133 metres high. Before the development of organised religious doctrine, Nachi no Taki was venerated by the earliest Japanese people. Even today, visitors will be impressed by the natural power and beauty of the falls.
