Destination of the second day, Kumano Kodo, Nachisan
The Kumano Kodō (熊野古道?) is a series of ancient pilgrimage routes that crisscross the Kii Hantō, the largest Peninsula of Japan. These sacred trails were and are still used for the pilgrimage to the sacred site "Kumano Sanzan" (熊野三山）, or the Three Grand Shrines of Kumano: Kumano Hongū Taisha (熊野本宮大社), Kumano Nachi Taisha (熊野那智大社) and Kumano Hayatama Taisha (熊野速玉大社). The Kumano Kodō pilgrimage routes that lead to Kumano can be geographically categorized into three sub-routes: "Kiji", "Kohechi" and "Iseji". The Kumano Kodō and Kumano Sanzan, along with Koyasan and Yoshino and Omine, were registered as UNESCO World Heritage on July 7, 2004 as the "Sacred Sites and Pilgrimage Routes in the Kii Mountain Range".
We walked only a few kilometers of the Kumano Kodo, but were able to feel the history from thousands of years ago. a lot of people were walking this road.
Kataribe-san by the Japanese milestone.
We finally arrived at Kumano Nachi Taisha. After we finished praying, we started to walk up to Nachi Falls. Even though we were tired and struggling, we were blown away in an instant when we saw Nachi Falls.
Nachi Falls (那智滝, Nachi no Taki?) in Nachikatsuura, Wakayama Prefecture, Japan, is one of the best-known waterfalls in Japan. With a drop of 133 m, it is often erroneously thought to be the country's tallest. In fact, the tallest waterfall in Japan is the Hannoki Falls, at 497 m.
Believed to house a kami called Hiryū Gongen worshiped at Kumano Nachi Taisha, it is part of the "Sacred Sites and Pilgrimage Routes in the Kii Mountain Range" UNESCO World Heritage Site.
