A journey to the land of gods, discover the heart of the Japanese spiritual world.

The Kii Peninsula is located to the south of Kyoto and Osaka. Including Mount Koya, the area is a sacred land and place of faith for many Japanese. A network of ancient pilgrimage routes called Kumano Kodo crisscross the sacred Kii Mountains. The routes are sister to The Camino De Santiago and a registered UNESCO world heritage site. This is one of Japan’s unique, mysterious and truly special lands which still continues to evoke a strong magic and charm.

The landscape of the Kumano is rich in beauty due to the changes of the four distinct seasons. With imposing mountains, crystal-clear waters and countless hot springs, the ancient pilgrims that walked this path would surely have believed they had beheld a paradise on earth.

On a special journey to Japan, this is a chance to escape the whir of the city and immerse oneself in the land of Gods, a place where the unchanged Japanese animism faith is deeply rooted.

Tranquil and relaxing, this journey uses the Kumano Sanzan (the three grand shrines) as a centre point, where three gods providing salvation from past, present and future are enshrined. Engage all the senses and absorb the essence of a spiritual culture that sustains the roots of Japan. A truly unforgettable experience exploring historical illusions and fantasies.
