The Kumano Kodo on the Kii Peninsula in western Japan is one of only two UNESCO registered world heritage pilgrimage routes in the world. Situated mostly deep in the mountains of Wakayama, Nara and Mie prefectures, the various ancient routes of the Kumano Kodo connect the sacred three Grand Shrines of Kumano and have been traveled by the devout and those seeking enlightenment for hundreds of years. Most of the routes are multi-day walks through stunningly beautiful and remote landscapes with walkers staying at ryokans and minshuku along the way, and these days the Kumano Kodo is increasingly popular with foreign visitors.
