Kumano Tour Reviews

Wonderful Walking Tour with Kiyoko

I had a great time walking with Kiyoko. The weather was perfect, the scenery spectacular and accompanied by a kind and knowledgeable guide. Kiyoko was very well prepared, friendly and interesting. I had wanted to visit this area for a long time and Kiyoko could provide history, context and make it meaningful, beyond just what I was seeing with my eyes. I would highly recommend anyone wanting to visit Kumano, Nachi Falls etc, to consider spending some of your time with Kiyoko. There is no substitute for a local guide. Thank you Kiyoko!

Simon W.

Simon, thank you very much for your great feedback. I appreciate your warm comment. It was my pleasure that I could be your guide today. You have been dreaming of visiting Nachi waterfall for a long time. It was a great honor for me that I could walk with you when your dream came true. I wish you would have great experiences during the rest of your stay in Japan. Please come back someday!

Kumano Kodo Tour

I had a fulfilling and fun tour experience with Hiroyuki-san! He was very knowledgable about the culture of the routes & temples. The hike up Daimon-zaka was alittle tough (due to my lack of stamina) but Hiroyuki-san was very kind and told me to take my time and took breaks inbetween. He also recommended one of best tuna restaurants by the port which was awesome. Overall, it was a pleasant experience and I look forward to meeting him again.

Stephanie C.

Stephanie-san, It was really nice meeting you yesterday. I was thinking about the tour last night after coming home. It was very good to know that you wanted to come to Nachi for a long time. The waterfalls, the shrine and the temple and the pilgrimage routes were so beautiful. But we walked the uphill stairs. Are your legs and feet okay now? Yes, see you later. Let’s walk the whole pilgrimage routes. You don’t want to walk uphill anymore? Alright, I will see you next time somewhere flat.

Amazing tour of Kumano and Nachi falls

This tour was absolutely amazing! Kumano pilgrimage trail and Nachi falls are absolutely stunning. Hiroyuki was an amazing guide who had a lot of knowledge about the area and history of the trail. Highly recommend this tour with Hiroyuki.

Lisa L.

Thank you very much for your kind words. It was very nice meeting you two yesterday. Kumano is far but it is worth visiting, isn't it? You will definitely like Mt Koya, too. Please come back to Japan sometime soon to visit Mt Koya. Happy birthday to US!!!
