  • 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.

  •  Kumano Hongu Taisha was once in Nakasu, called Oyunohara, which is located at the confluence of the Kumano, Onagawa, and Iwata rivers. Many buildings were lined up, and it seemed to be several times the scale of the present Kumano Hongu Taisha.  Due to the great flood damage that occurred in The Meiji Era, many of the shrines of The Hongu Taisha shrine were drained, and the building that escaped the flood damage was moved to the place where kumano hongu taisha is present. A few hundred meters south of the present Kumano Hongu Taisha shrine, a large torii with a height of 34 m was built. In addition, it seems that the place where the trees around which advanced grows up is the place which was Daisaihara before. 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.
