A group of 60 customers came from Osaka with Happy Walk to walk a part of the trail with a Mi-Kumano guide. There was a light rain, but the customers enjoyed the low clouds hanging over the mountains at Takahara. The rain also helped keep pollen out of the air.
The group walked from Takahara down to the roadside rest area in Nakahechi, about 8 km.
The next Happy Walk event will go past the Gyubadoji statue on the way to Chikatsuyu.
