The Kumano Kodo - an introduction

The Kii Peninsula points south away from Kyoto and Osaka and is one of the most remote and mystical areas of Japan, despite its proximity to these great cities. Long a place of pilgrimage, the Kii Peninsula is the site of the three Grand Shrines of Kumano (Kumano Sanzan). Our Kumano Kodo self-guided tours offer 45 or 6 days walking village to village along the old pilgrimage route.
