Tokyo Weekender Press Tour
On May 9, 2012 the Wakayama Prefecture government held a press tour for the Tokyo Weekender, Tokyo's longest running premium English magazine. Founded in 1970, the Weekender is published monthly and is distributed in central Tokyo.
The Tanabe City Kumano Tourism Bureau supported the tour during their visit to the Tanabe City region. Sites visited sited included Takijiri-oji along the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage route and the Kumano Hongu Taisha. A short walk was included along the section from Hosshinmon-oji to Kumano Hongu Taisha. The historic Yunomine Onsen and natural wonder, Kawayu Onsen were also covered.
Thank you to Tokyo Weekender and we are looking forward to the article in the upcoming issue.
