Koyasan and Kumano Kodo
On the Spring & Autumn tours we visit Koyasan before walking the entire 70km of the Nakahechi route of the Kumano Kodo as pilgrims have done since ancient times. Although sections of this walk may be challenging for some, we are rewarded with amazing scenery along the way. Both tours include two nights in the Hongu area. The Spring tour coincides with the annual Kumano Hongu Taisha Spring Festival held each year on 15 April. Find out more about these regions.
Anyone completing one of these walks and Spain’s Camino de Santiago is eligible to become a dual pilgrim.
