Great long day hike. Amazing history in the walk with shrines and temples all over the place. Very well marked and easy to follow. Very well maintained. A small section was closed but detour was clearly marked. It added about .4 miles to the journey. We finished in about 5 hours - we weren’t sprinting, but we weren’t lolligagging either. Probably a good idea to visit the local onsen when finished.

November is a good season for this trail. Sunshine flow on the forest and kiss my face. But too many rocks.

Incredible! Well worth the effort. Do it early morning to avoid the crowds.

This was a nice mellow trail wandering through a beautiful forest. There is a great viewpoint around halfway through the hike which gives a great vantage point on the surrounding hills! I only saw 6 people the whole hike.

wonderful trail in the woods, up and down hills and creeks and rivers, crossing shrines and temples. special mix of nature and spirit. highly recommended

The start of the Kumano Kodo trail.

It was not easy, but worth! With all photoshoot’s and 28-30’ C we did it in 7 hours. The last section between Hongu and Yunomine Onsen was hardest: steep up and steep down. Try it!!!

Day 1 of the Komano Kodo Pilgrimage Trek. Takijiri-oji > Takahara

This loop includes three Hongu area paths that form a loop on the Kumano Kodo. I started and ended at Younomine Onsen and did the loop clockwise. The first section was Akagi-goe, which is officially closed following a very nasty typhoon that washed out two bridges. Perhaps it is because the goal is to re-open this section in Summer 2019 or because of the very high quality control of Japanese hikers/pilgrims, the trail seemed in better condition than many US mountain trails with the exception of one washed out bridge that required scrambling up a short but steep creek bank. This obstacle is approximately 600 meters south and west from Funatama-jinja (33•51’11 N; 135•42’54 E), which is right where Akagi-goe becomes the route between Hosshinmom-oji and Kumano Hongu Taisha. At the change in trails, you’ll find another hugely washed out bridge, but a temporary and sturdy bridge has been built. This second leg is quite leisurely. Make sure to take the detour loop between markers 73 and 74 for a great preview of the Oyunohara Torii gate. The final leg from Kumano Hongu Taisha up the Dainichi-goe route is the shortest but has the steepest climb up and down a mountain pass. Over all, the loop is moderate in difficulty. The short scramble at the first washed out bridge on Akagi-goe and final ascent up Dainichi-goe might be why this hike is rated “hard.”

Kumano Kodo is partner with Camino de Santiago. This was a great lifetime experience for both of us, spiritually and physically. The hike gave us opportunities to meet people from different countries, sharing stories from east to west. The Onsen was awesome, great foods, and of course very respectful and sincere Japanese folks from all over Japan!
