Area 5 Mt. Yaki
Travelers on Kumano Kodo feared the trail calling it “the most difficult trail to pass in the west.” On top of the dense forest and steep trail, pirates and wolves were said to have appeared frequently. People used to pass this cobble stoned trail fearing for their lives.
Because this was such a tough trail to walk, you will find a lot of milestone remains shaped like the guardian deities of travelers.
