Kumano Kodo is a series of ancient pilgrimage routes and sacred trails, linked by the ancient capital cities of Kyoto and Nara. Enriched by more than 1200 years of history, UNESCO calls this beautiful region “part of the living culture of Japan.” This is as much a journey through local culture and rural life as it is spectacular natural beauty. As you walk, you will breathe in the earthy scents of woods and rivers and flowers. You will taste traditional meals, prepared by local chefs. You will step over cobbled stairways and past ancient shrines and statues. You will soak in centuries-old thermal springs. And you will be lulled to sleep each night by the gentle sounds of the forest. You will be attended by your tour guide for the 3 days pilgrimage routes. You will meet your guide after your breakfast in the accommodation of Yunomine Onsen on Day 2.

Day 1: You will make your own way to Yunomine Onsen by trains and bus. Please check “Directions to Departure Location” for directions to your accommodation tonight.
