We walked two days on the famous pilgrim stone path through the mountains towards Kumano Hongu Taisha. There was a trail description for the first day as follows:
- The route from here to Koguchi in Hongu-cho includes a steep pass with an altitude of 800 meters. It is called "Okumotori-goe", which means "passing over clouds". In the Heian Period, the Ex-emperor Goshirakawa and Teika Fujiwara lamented over the steepness of the path in their travel diaries. It is one of the most famous and most difficult sections of the Kumano Sankeimichi.
