"This historic site is along the Nakahechi Trail, part of the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage route. The name is said to come from pilgrims walking the trail via Hosshinmon-Oji and Mizunomi-Oji. When they arrived at Fushiogami-Oji, Kumano Hongu Taisha Grand Shrine finally came into view, and the pilgrims would fall down in reverence. Today you can see Oyunohara at the spot where Kumano Hongu Taisha Grand Shrine once stood. There is a small shrine at Fuhiogami-Oji, as well as a memorial to the Heian Period (794–1185) poet Shikibu Izumi who stopped there to pray. Another must-see is the nearby house and tea field used as a shooting location for the NHK drama ""Honmamon."" "

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.
