Great to be in the air

The Kumano Kodo requires a fair amount of capacity, but it is worth it. The fresh air and forest views are excellent

We walked the Kumano Kodo loop from and back to Yunomine. It took a full day for people of moderate fitness. We greatly enjoyed the walk and it was a wonderful contrast to the busy cities of Japan. There is quite a lot of logging in the area, so the scenery wasn't quite as spectacular as I had hoped for... More

We spent two days walking and 4 days in the area. Dont be afraid of using local buses to help you cover sections of the walk. Worth all the aches and sore muscles. Visit one of the onsens like Kayawa to relax and relieve the aches.

We were blessed to have chosen this walk. Its well marked every 500 meter with clear sign but still keeping the stone paved ancient walk instead of sealed tar road. We feel refreshed and renewed from this 4 days Nakaheichi walk which starts from Takijiri to Hongu Taisha.

After leaving the bus we follow the old pilgrim path through the mountains, dense forests and hill. You can see a different Japan as the one we know from Tokyo or Osaka. People speak only little English but with... More

We started from Takijiri (a 50 min bus ride from Kii-Tanabe), overnighted at Tsugizakura and finished 40 km away at Hongu. A little steep at times but it was very satisfying. Great if you like hiking through beautiful forests. Very well signed, and the Kumano travel association website even has a downloadable audio guide that tells you more about what... More
