Ogumotorigoe, the most memorable challenge of the Kodo

Ogumo-tori-goe (Nachi Taisha to Koguchi)

This course is said to be the hardest of the Nakahechi routes.

It connects the Nachi Taisha to Koguchi, a small village.

Along this route, you can overlook the Kumano Sea from Funami pass when it is clear, and find a round mossy rock where the gods are said to have sat and had a friendly chat.

They will definitely lend a sense of accomplishment to the hard journey!
