Kumano Nachi Taisha, Nachikatsura-cho

(4.5/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
See the fusion of Buddhist and Shinto influences that separates the region from others at Kumano Nachi Taisha, a UNESCO-protected Shinto shrine occupying the same plot as a Buddhist temple. Located halfway up the mountain, the shrine stands at 350 m (1148 ft) above sea level, with its impressive backdrop featuring the tallest waterfall in the country. The shrine's architecture and spiritual importance combine with the scenery to give the area an atmosphere of reverence and calm. Part of the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage route, the shrine--along with others on the 1000-year-old pilgrimage route--has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

  • Why come to this province. Here is the reason first, but from people throughout Japan. Paste the plan that must be supplied. After arriving, it said at the time for it to come up here, no matter what, it's pretty down pagoda view view view people and it is very tasty. choedokmai Moss forest of Martin strange to summer, but on this very cool. If there is a chance to go back. This cycle with the elderly there from way up ahead. Use the up and down way by bus only Would like to say straight JR Keith Katsuura is rice perilla owner Dick is very delicious. The water filled with people eating raw fish has to eat a bowl of candy orders superhero to the country. Fresh fish, tasty, but a little shop, remember the shop name is not next to the corner shop that sells the same raw fish over rice. The owner is a good Uncle. Grand solo work independently. from cooking the lean of the rehabilitation ever celebrity gourmet Thailand. Enough for him to know that we as a people came to Thailand stand count 1-10, listen more (secretly say first that we talk to your uncle is Japan, isn't it? Whatcha say.)

  • 搭著車到山上後 可以考慮爬個山,或直接坐公車到頂端 在上面慢慢往下走,一路上雖然商店有點太多 但是神社的氛圍和風景融合 尤其是走到塔的附近時 遠眺塔和瀑布那個景緻 簡直是在卡通或動畫才會出現的日本場景 非常值得造訪
