Kumano Kodo

258 km, divided into 23 legs

熊野古道

Kumano Kodo is the pilgrimage road that leads to Kumano Sanzan: the three grand shrines of Kumano - Hongu-taisha, Hayatama-taisha, Nachi-taisha. Kumano is located on the Kii-peninsula south of Kyoto and Osaka.

The trails (it's a collection of them) are very old, dating back to the 17th century. Often, the cobblestones you are walking on, have carried the feet of centuries of pelgrims.

The temples are located lovely in the dense forests of the Kii Mountains overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

Best time is spring, when flowers bloom. Winter and autumn are good too. Summer is pretty hot.

  • Positive The people in the little villages are so incredibly friendly, and the scenery is spectacular (even in winter, when I went).
  • Negative There is nothing to dislike about these trails, but they are very very steep and there are a lot of stairs, so be prepared for a workout.
