  • A pilgrimage path which you can do all the various sections as well as the Camino de Santiago de Compostela. At the end of the Pilgrim path past the three great temples known as Kumano Sanzan, namely: Kumano Hongu Taisha, Kumano Hayatama Taisha and Kumano Nachi Taisha. I did only the piece that reaches the Human Temple Hongu Taisha but worth the short walk through the forest of towering trees and old and few birds.

Where to stay in Osaka

The majority of Osaka's moderate and expensive accommodations concentrate in the districts of Umeda, Kyobashi, Namba, and Shin-Osaka. Base your stay in or near Minami neighborhood for proximity to a wide selection of shopping and dining options. For quick access to long-distance transportation to other cities and areas, look for hotels in Kita district. Many backpackers prefer the budget options in the Tennoji area, where the quality of rooms and prices vary wildly--call or check websites of specific establishments before you make reservations.
