Kumano Nachi Taisha

TravelLing

Mar 7, 2017

Nachi Taisha is one of the 3 Kumano shrines on the Kumano Kodo Pilgrimage Route. Thus a must see site if you come to this part of Japan. If you're lucky, you may even catch a prayer ceremony.
Here you'll also find the tallest waterfall in Japan. The scenery is beautiful and you'll enjoy the tranquil walk around the shrine, temple, pagoda and waterfall.
For an easier journey, catch a bus from Kii-Katsuura Station or Nachi Station to the base of Nachi Shrine, from where it is a ten minute climb up several stairs to the main buildings of Nachi Taisha and Seigantoji Temple, and hike down to the pagoda and waterfall.
Or you can choose to stop at the base of the Daimonzaka trail ("Daimonzaka" bus stop) hike up to Nachi Taisha like the pilgrims. There are free walking sticks you can use to help with the hike,
You'll feel refreshed by the visit and invigorated by the waterfall.
