The beautiful Kumano region in the southern reaches of the Kii Peninsula is one of Japan’s oldest sacred sites and has been a pilgrimage mecca for centuries. It is blessed with verdant mountains, aweinspiring waterfalls, a rugged coastline, soothing hot springs, and rich traditional culture.

 

Believing that it is not the destinations but the journeys within which sustain us, we invite you to experience the warm hospitality and scenic natural beauty of Shikoku. A deeper and more traditionally authentic Japan where time slows, the stresses of everyday life slip away and your journey within begins.

 

Situated in the far north of Nagano Prefecture, Iiyama is a city lost in time where untouched beauty surrounds ancient tradition. You will experience a unique and stunning walking trail called “The Shin-etsu Trail” which boarders Nagano and Niigata Prefectures.
