Daimonzaka, Nachikatsura-cho
(4.6/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
Take the easy hike up the quaint cobbled steps of Daimonzaka. The 600 m (1,968.5 ft) path leads you through a corridor of old, well-established cedar trees, all the way from the valley floor to the shrine complex above. Soak up the serene atmosphere from the peaceful trail, and witness the "husband and wife" cedars at the top of the slope, with their roots entwined. Keep your eyes peeled for the picturesque Nachi falls, visible from the top of the trail.

  • Located in Nachi Katsuura-cho, Kumano old road area is a road part of the road, from free parking up to the Kumano Nachi Taisha (stone). On the way to the monument of stone like Prince. You can walk, so parking is easily accessible to novices. For not very long (about 1 Km) in the distance is uphill, and you can walk to the ideal easy.

  • Daimonzaka, seigantoji Temple Kumano Nachi Taisha, and Nachi waterfall is set in. First towards the bottom gate on about 500 steps up the slope. Big gate, through big Meoto-sugi cedar, even walks through cedar and goes out to the parking lot. Are able to experience a glimpse of the Kumano ancient road.

  • Parked free gate Hill parking lot and walk around a little bit and takes you to the entrance gate Hill. Walk just a little between the houses and now tea (was not available since early morning on the day of visit. Unspecified), and from a little ahead during the Cedar cobblestone (almost stairs) of Kodo will. In the slick and surprisingly rugged, take care, and whether or not will fall. So, shoes, sneakers or trekking shoes we recommend. 40-50 minutes slowly climb and arrives at Nachi Taisha Shrine. Not so tight but I think that the best course to taste the atmosphere. I think not being confident in going down good with bus return daimonzaka. Also can anyone borrow free of charge at the gate Hill parking lot staff there. In addition, there are toilets, is very useful.
