Spain Press Tour
From Feb 5 to 8th, Wakayama Prefecture sponsored a press tour for Juan Antonio www.narrogeographic.blogspot.com, a radio personality and travel writer from Spain. The Tanabe City Kumano Tourism Bureau supported the tour during their visit to the Tanabe City region.
The tour visited sites along the KumanoKodo pilgrimage routes, Kumano Hongu Taisha, Yunomine Onsen and natural wonder Kawayu Onsen. The Oto matsuri in Shingu at the Kumano Hayatama Taisha and Kumano Nachi Taisha were also visited.
In addition to the sacred sites of the region, an overnight at farm stay in Tanabe was included to experience the local agriculture lifestyle.
We believe that this tour showcased a side of Japan that didn't fit the typical stereotype of Japan that many people have.
Thank you very much to all of those who participated and helped organized this FAM trip.
