Mid-morning on my second day of walking along the ancient Japanese pilgrimage route known as the Nakahechi, I found myself looking for an egg shaped rock to fool the serpents that haunt the nearby shrine. The logic for this: serpents love eggs; offering an ‘egg’ will appease the beast so I might pass this spot without incurring some curse of bad luck.
We have had many positive comments from
guests visiting the sacred Kumano region and would like to share some of them
with you. Netherlands, Female July, 2012 I really appreciate the site and the tourism
bureau. The mails I had with the staff about hotel reservation were very clear
and helpful. Thereby the reaction time was fast. And I was really pleased by
the help we got at the Tanabe City Tourism Bureau. People went out of their way
to help us! When the staff had difficulty helping us in English, colleagues
were called for help and they rushed to the bureau to help us out. What a
service! And the leaflets about Kumano Kodo are really clear and informative.
Had a great time at Tanabe and surroundings, thanks a lot!!! USA, Female July, 2012 Excellent site and very helpful! Best
tourist site I've ever used- ever! Keep it up! Australia, Male July, 2012 You guys offer the best service of any
tourist bureau we have ever used - anywhere.
We can't thank you enough. B…
