This hundreds year-old pilgrim road is one of those world heritages. I wondered if the road is worth the honor before I went, but it is!

You can't help but feel the spirituality on this walk, nature at it's best it's a bit of a hike up 600 meters long with 267 stairs but all along the way you are engulfed in natural beauty. Don't miss the husband and wife trees that are growing side by side and are estimated at being 800 years old. If... More

Daimonzaka was the main pilgrimage path up to Mt. Nachi and the temple complex there in ancient times. It's one of the better paths that's set with stone. This short section preserved since the olden days really gives you a good feeling of what it must have been like walking in a remote secluded forest. The are a pair of... More

Took the bus from Kii-katsuura JR station to Daimon-zaka. Then hiked 800m uphill to Nachi Taisha and Nachi-no-taki. Walking among trees in September was cooling.

I walked down this route from Nachi Taisha so it was easy for me. I only took 30 minutes to finish it. At the bottom you could walk to the Daimonzaka parking lot to get bus to the Katsuura station.

Lots of steps but if you go from top - Nachi.san, to bottom then not too hard. Wonderful and huge cedars along the way.
