Kumano Kodo, Japan

Trekking the Kumano Kodo Ancient Pilgrimage Trail

In July 2014, I had the opportunity to visit an old friend in Japan. I decided to make use of some of this time while my friend was still at work (not vacation time yet), to hike — over a period of 4 days — an important section of a series of ancient pilgrimage trails called the Kumano Kodo.
