そうそう、入り口は自動ドアで外の歩道を歩いていると開いてしまいギクッとした記憶があります。
Reviewed:2018/01/16 刈茅堂の斜め向かいです”香老舗 高野山大師堂”
高野山での造り酒屋ならぬ、造り線香屋さんらしいです。刈茅堂の斜め向かいなのですが、思ったよりも小さい店舗というかテナントみたいな建物なので見逃しやすいと思います。私はお試し品のような『小さいパック』を数種買いました。金剛峯寺でも売っていた杉や高野槙や檜の”エッセンスオイル”はココの商品だったのですね。

          Wakayama prefecture unites pilgrims, food lovers, and culture buffs in a tranquil corner of Japan at the base of the Kii Peninsula. The setting for many a Kumano Kodo pilgrimage trail, Wakayama invites those in search of spirituality from one side of the prefecture to the other, from the 100-plus Buddhist temples of the sacred Mount Koya in the west to the inspiring temples of the Kumano Sanzan set among breathtaking nature in the east. Once the grueling hike is complete, make a beeline for Wakayama city to savor some of the country’s most delicious ramen noodles.
