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

The Kii Peninsula is located 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.
