Trip Planner: Asia / Japan / Kinki / Wakayama Prefecture / Higashimuro-gun / Nachikatsura-cho / Kumano Nachi Taisha
See the fusion of Buddhist and Shinto influences that separates the region from others at Kumano Nachi Taisha, a UNESCO-protected Shinto shrine occupying the same plot as a Buddhist temple. Located halfway up the mountain, the shrine stands at 350 m (1148 ft) above sea level, with its impressive backdrop featuring the tallest waterfall in the country. The shrine's architecture and spiritual importance combine with the scenery to give the area an atmosphere of reverence and calm. Part of the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage route, the shrine--along with others on the 1000-year-old pilgrimage route--has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Kumano Nachi Taisha Reviews
高速を降り、那智大社への道を上っていくと、大門坂の手前に無料の駐車場がありました。さらに曲がりくねった道を上っていくと、茶店やお土産屋さんなどが建っています。このあたりにも駐車場はありましたが、さらに奥に進んでみると、急な上り坂の狭い道がありました。登った先には、那智大社の社務所があり、広くはない駐車場がありました。この駐車場が、那智大社に一番近いと思います。 社務所からすぐのところに那智大社... more »When we got off the high speed and went up the road to Nachi Taisha, there was a free parking lot in front of Daimonzaka. Further up the winding road, you will find tea shops and souvenir shops. There was a parking lot in this area, but there was a narrow road of a steep uphill when advancing further in the interior. At the top of the hill, there was a company office of Nachi Taisha, and there was a parking lot which was not wide. I think this parking lot is the closest to Nachi Taisha. The shrine of Nachi Taisha is located just outside the office. It is painted in a vermilion as dazzling. Next to the shrine, there is a treasure hall, which is paid, and i was able to learn about the history of the Kumano faith. The parking lot in front of the office where i parked my car was built on a cliff, and it was a great view point where nachi falls could be seen in the other side of the building group of Aokishi Toji.
長い長い階段を上って行った先にあります。 道中にはお土産屋さんや、お茶屋さんもありますので休憩しながら上がれます。 神社は朱色が鮮やかでキレイです。 more »It's just up the long, long stairs. There is also a souvenir shop and a tea shop on the way, so you can go up while taking a break. The shrine is bright and beautiful.
What a wonderful temple place!!! Absolutely worth every single step uphill, and the travel with local trains from Osaka to be compensated with a unique temple complex of the 3-legged-raven. Yes, GOT-fans ... a raven with 3 legs, not with 3 eyes :-) As in most places try to be here early. Even though the shrines and temples open up around 9:00, you will have chances to explore the complex and take some good photos for memories, without the risk of being photo-bombed.
Very very very beautiful place you must go in your trip. You will have to take a bus to get there. My advice is that if you want to walk kind of long way, you should get off the bus at the first stop on the hill. If you don’t want to walk get off at the second stop.
