“Totsukawa-mura” is the largest village in Japan and is located in the southernmost part of Nara Prefecture. Winding through the 1000-meter high mountains of the village, the World Heritage Site “Kumano Kodo Kohechi” is an ancient pilgrimage route that connects several sacred sites. Cobblestone paths and stone buddhas along the course give a sense of the ancient roads of Japan. In the middle of this year’s course on the highlands overlooking the mountains, the old, well-known hamlet of Hatenashi gives a feeling of nostalgia. Nestled in highlands surrounded by rich nature and history, you will surely enjoy one of the “100 Best Villages in Japan.” In addition, you can experience the first officially-designated “Gensen Kake-nagashi Onsen” which are hot springs flowing naturally from their source.
