Tips on Planning Your Trip

  • The given walking times written on maps do not include breaks. Take rest time and your physical condition into consideration when planning your trip.
  • In winter, it gets dark early, therefore it is wise to set out on the above courses in the morning.
  • Coin lockers are available in front of Kumano Hongu Taisha.

Travel by Car and Bus

  • Bus service is provided between each Onsen and Kumano Hongu Taisha.
  • No parking available along Kumano Kodo.
