Hiking on World Heritage Kumano Kodo Kohechi


Hiking on the UNESCO World Heritage pilgrimage path Kumano Kodo Kohechi is one of the MUST-DO things once you visit Totsukawa. Kohechi starts from Koyasan, Wakayama, to Kumano-Hongu Shrine and normally takes 3 nights 4 days hiking. The route runs through Totsukawa and normally hikers spend 2 nights in Totsukawa to complete the hike. Kohechi has more than 1300 years of history. So why don't you experience a little bit of it? Of course, if you'd like to hike for 4 days I will support you for sure!

I’m Hanako, I’m a "new" local in Totsukawa! I moved here in October 2019, previously having only lived in major cities. The whole village is my playground. Since I moved here, I’ve been enjoying the lifestyle and stunning natural spaces of Totsukawa every day. I even started growing my own vegetables. I love it here because the local people are very warm-hearted and have helped me a lot. I’d love to show you around and introduce you to many lovely locals so if you want to visit Totsukawa, please contact me.
