Kumano is a coastal city on the southern tip of the Kii Peninsula, 100 km south of Osaka, facing the Pacific Ocean. Kumano City (pop. 20,000) is of interest to travelers for its trails, rock formations, and shrines. It is one of the most popular spiritual areas in Japan. Kumano is centred around three shrines, Hongu Taisha, Nachi Taisha and Hayatama Taisha, collectively known as the Kumano Sanzan. Pilgrims have traveled to the Kumano Sanzan via walking trails for over 1000 years. Kumano is often called "The Land of the Dead", in reference to the belief that Shinto spirits and family ancestors dwell here after they die.

One such trail in the city, the Matsumoto Pass, is one kilometre long and reaches an elevation of about 100m. A further 30 km north of Kumano City is the Magose Pass trail, considered the most picturesque hike of all. The majority of the trail leads through forest, to an elevation of over 300m. The preserved section stretches for over two kilometres. There are also a number of hot springs in the region. Yunomine Onsen is the oldest hot spring in Japan, said to have been discovered about 1,800 years ago.

There are unique rock formations on the coastline that have become part of local mythology. About a kilometre south of Kumano's city centre stands Hana no Iwaya Shrine. In a unique festival, a giant rope is pulled from the shrine grounds to the nearby beach every year on February 2 and October 2. Take a boat through the Dorokyo gorge surrounded by deep green trees in the upper stream of Kumano River, and you can enjoy the beautiful natural scenery of mountains, waterfalls and unusually-shaped rocks.
