2回目の熊野なので、以前行けなかったとっころも行こうと思い行きました。熊野に宿泊しての観光なので前日と翌朝早くの２回行きました。特に早朝は人もおらず、澄み切った空気の中、ゆっくりしました more »It was the second Time in Kumano, so I thought I'd go there when I couldn't go there before. Because it was a sightseeing stay in Kumano, I went there twice the day before and early the next morning. Especially in the early morning, there were no people, so I relaxed in the clear air.
熊野本宮大社はかつて、熊野川・音無川・岩田川の合流点にある大斎原（おおゆのはら）と呼ばれる中洲にあったそうです。多くの建物が立ち並んでいて、現在の熊野本宮大社の数倍の規模だったそうです。明治２２年に起こった大水害のため、本宮大社の社殿の多くが流出してしまい、水害を免れた建物を現在の熊野本宮大社がある場所に移したそうです。 現在の熊野本宮大社から南へ数百ｍ行くと、高さが３４ｍもあるという大鳥居が... more »Kumano Hongu Taisha was once in Nakasu, called Oyunohara, which is located at the confluence of the Kumano, Onagawa, and Iwata rivers.

It was maintained to the extent that it was understood as a site, and the small shrine of the stone which surrounded four companies and the shimo4 company which had been washed away was built.
Huge Torri (biggest in Japan) marks the end of pilgrimage route. To get the best picture, go up on the jetty next to the rice field.
We enjoyed the shallow Kumano River near Oyunohara. Noted on wonder-tips.
