Visit Nachi, Hongu and Shingu. There are three grand shrines called Kumano-Sanzan ( three holy places). You can feel the 2000 years history. Also we can see many beautiful landscapes around them.

You can date back to the ancient Japan. Seeing beautiful landscapes you can imagine the huge volcanic activity 14 million years ago.(
Transportation ( calculated 12km/litter) about ¥12/km. Parking lot and toll road(very rare in Kumano)
( Nothing but you can enjoy more to learn below)
(1) Xu Fu, who came to Japan 2200 years ago escaping from Qin Shi huam.
(2) Relation for Shintoism and Buddhism. It is unique and complicated.
Yasuo is very good guide who puts a lot of effort into planning a trip and offers different options.
Thank you very much for your excellent evaluation. I also enjoyed much, that you have deep understanding about Japanese culture and history.
We had an amazing time w/ Yasuo. He picked us up promptly @ 8am from our hotel and took us to many amazing sights. We had wanted to visit Nachi Falls so Yasuo made many great suggestions to accompany that excursion to fill our day. He gave us lots of info and snacks along the way. Def recommend to anyone exploring the area! Will request him again in the future. ありがとございました、やすおさん！
Thank you very much for amazing review. I’m sorry I was disappointed missing for bathing in the riverbed hot spring at Kawayu Onsen. つぎに たのしみましょう！
Yasuo is very helpful and knows the places very well. He took us to see many scenic places and we enjoyed the places he picked for us to have picnic lunch on both days.
Thank you very much for your review. I also enjoyed with you. I’m very proud of Wakayama with great scenic and historical resources. I’m sorry and disappointed the collapse of car road to “Hyakken-Gura”.
Yasuo is a very good guide who really knows the area very well. We w ent to several interesting places and towns in addition to the major shrines. Although his English speaking is not very good, his understanding is much better. He understood us and made the tour very good., particularly since we had.done a lot of advance research on this area and did not require much more explanation. Other English speaking tourists might not be as satisfied with his level of English. He is a very smart and nice person. Contact me if you would like additional information.
Thank you for your exceeding evaluation for me. I was encouraged by your massage. I will learn English hard. Thank you and have a good trip.
