Ancient pilgrimage trails in Japan’s Kii mountain range are now globally protected as UNESCO World Heritage sites. The trails link the Three Grand Shrines of Kumano.
Traditional inns, local food producers, hot springs and travel companies along the trails are listed in a reservation system run by the Tanabe City Kumano Tourism Bureau.
Efforts by the Bureau to encourage responsible tourism in this region saw it named runner-up in the recent Destination Stewardship section of the Tourism for Tomorrow 2012 awards.
