Dai-nichi-goe (Oyu-no-hara to Yunomine Onsen)
This road’s use is said to have been limited to Shinto priests and mountain ascetics for religious fstivals. After the Yu-nobori-shinji festival at Kumano Hongu Taisha, fathers carry their young sons on their shoulders over this pass to Oyu-no-hara for a tiring but rewarding event. It’s a popular and lively festival.
In the middle of the dense forest are the Tsukimi-ga-oka Shrine and Hana-kake Jizo Guardian Deity.
