Dine Magazine visits Kumano

From April 16~18 Adam Waxman from Dine magazine joined a Tanabe City Kumano Tourism Bureau Press tour.


The press tour covered the tastes and sites of the sacred Kumano region including the Kumano Sanzan shrines and Kumano Kodo pilgrimage route.  The onsen culture was experienced in Yunomine and Kawayu.  The final night included eating at one of Tanabe's authentic izakaya restaurants featured in our Gourmet Map.

It was a busy and enjoyable trip and we thank Adam Waxman for taking the time out of his busy schedule to join us.
