The Kumano Kodo
The Kumano Kodo is a series of ancient pilgrimage trails that cross over Kii Peninsula on the bottom east corner of Honshu, the main island of Japan.
The walk starts near the small city of Tanabe which is located a couple of hours train ride from Osaka, and ends at Nachi Taisha Grand Temple and waterfalls or in Kii Katsuura seaside fishing town having completed the Nakahechi Imperial Route.
The various Kumano Kodo walks take in up to three of the Great Shrines of Kumano; Kumano Hongu Taisha, Kumano Nachi Taisha, and Kumano Hayatama Taisha.
Accommodation along the Kumano Kodo is most authentically experienced by staying in the Minshuku and Ryokan which are small Japanese guest-houses in the villages along the walk, some of which have Japanese ‘onsen’ baths, and many of which can offer guests house prepared traditional and seasonal Japanese.
