Hadasu-no-michi Pass Route波田須の道

Other Sightseeing Spot

This roughly four-kilometer stretch of roadway is part of the ancient Kumano Kodo pilgrimage route. The closest stations are JR Atashika Station on the Ise side and JR Hadasu Station on the Kumano side. The course starts from Atashika Town and you pass Hadasu and Odamari before going through the city of Kumano and on to Hananoiwaya-jinja Shrine. It has been designated a Mie Prefecture Mothers' and Children's Natural and Historic Walking Path. Along the way you'll find cobblestone paving from the Kamakura Period, considered to be the oldest on the Iseji portion of the Kumano Kodo. You can also see sites like Jofuku-no-Miya Shrine, which is dedicated to the historic Chinese traveler Xu Fu who came in search of the elixir of perpetual youth, as well as a hollow filled with sacred water. Known as the Water Footprint, it's said to have been left by Kobo Daishi, the founder of esoteric Japanese Buddhism.

Mie Main Areas


Spread across the eastern side of the Kii Peninsula, Mie prefecture boasts hundreds of kilometers of pretty coastline comprising the oyster-rich Toba city and Shima National Park all the way down to Kumano, a city that marks the beginning of part of the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage, which runs into neighboring Wakayama prefecture. However, Mie is best known for the Ise Jingu Shinto shrine inland, one of the oldest and largest shrines in the country.
