Kumano in Wakayama prefecture, the area located in the south of Osaka, is an integration of nature and nature worship.

Bountiful nature - sacred mountains, Japan’s tallest water fall, southern sea sparkling in blue, clear streams, and the naturally created art of rocks ‚Äï has been closely integrated into the culture of nature worship and faith in sacred land to this date. The Kumano Pilgrimage Routes, collectively called Kumano Kodo, have been leading people to the Three Grand Shrines of Kumano for over 1,000 years. Kumano Kodo is one of the two World Heritage “paths”.

In this tour, you will be biking and hiking. You will travel on the ancient Kumano Kodo, visit the Three Grand Shrines of Kumano, and will find yourself completely immersed in the beautiful nature of spectacular mountain ranges, massive and strange rocks, clear streams of water, and magnificent waterfalls.

The great attraction of this tour is that you will travel the Kumano Kodo only by bike and on foot while Kumano Kodo tours usually involve bus or train travel.
