Travel on the sacred Kumano Kodo, or Kumano Ancient Trail, a famous pilgrimage route to Kumano. Enjoy a beautifully varied hike throughout the mountainous range that lies south of Osaka, Nara, and Kyoto. Spend four days on the well-preserved trail while traveling through deep valleys, mountains, and small villages. During your journey, rest at comfortable family-run inns, enjoy the local food, soak in natural hot springs, and visit various shrines. On your trek, visit three great Kumano Shrines – Kumano Hongu Taisha, Kumano Nachi Taisha, and Hayatama Taisha. Let your English-speaking guide walk you through this ancient trail.

Begin your journey in the city of Kyoto, where you will take the train south along the coast and spend four days hiking the Nakahechi Trail, also a UNESCO World Heritage site. Take a day mid-way through your journey to relax with a pleasant ride along the Kumano River to Hayatama Taisha Shrine. Afterwards, we will cross the Kii Peninsula on foot heading towards the eastern fishing town, Katsuura. With a two-night stay at a hot-spring hotel along with an extra optional day of hiking, you will be able to relax and rejuvinate. Travel back to Kyoto by train to complete your journey. Relax and let All Japan Tours take care of the details along with your luggage transfers, breakfasts, and dinners.
