The Kumano Kodo is a series of ancient pilgrimage routes that crisscross through the dense forests and mountains of the Kii Peninsula of Japan. The ancient pilgrimage is one of only two UNESCO World Heritage pilgrimage routes in the world, the other being the Camino de Santiago in Spain. In 2015, the two routes were designated as “Dual Pilgrimage Routes” and pilgrims who walk both routes are recognized as Dual Pilgrims.

Follow in the footsteps of 11th-century imperial pilgrims as we explore the sacred Kumano Sanzan (the three Grand Shrines of Kumano: Hongu Taisha, Hayatama Taisha and Nachi Taisha). Along the way, discover both the similarities and differences between the two World Heritage Pilgrimage Routes.
