Kamikura Shrine on Mt. Gongen is the original site of the Kumano Hayatama Grand Shrine, and is within walking distance of the current Hayatama Taisha location. The 800+ year old "stairs" can be a little treacherous, so make sure you're wearing good shoes when you hike up. Taking it slow, you can get to the top easily within 8-10 minutes... More
