World Heritage & Kumano Kodo Autumn Tour 2017
from A$5900 | Sun 29th October — Sat 11th November 2017 | 14 days-13nights
Autumn colours, hot springs, and outstanding food, coupled with stays in Japan’s most popular cities of Tokyo and Kyoto will revitalize any person seeking a tour offering unrivalled beauty.
Over the centuries, Japanese commoners and then foreigners also took to Kumano Kodo, and word of its beauty and cultural richness spread until it became one of only two pilgrimage routes to be enshrined in Unesco’s list of world heritage sites.
For most travelers the road to Kumano Kodo begins in Tokyo and culminates in Kyoto Japan’s capital for more than a millennium until the late 19th century.
Kyoto has grown into a modern metropolis while preserving the temples and sacred gardens of another age. However nothing compares to travelling to the Kii mountains, through forests ablaze with autumn colour, to another Unesco world heritage site and the centre of Shingon Buddhism -Koyasan.
A highlight of a visit to Koyasan comes at dawn, when guests are allowed to enter the temple’s prayer hall, glowing with candles and heavy with incense, to watch the golden-robed monks
