Daimonzaka is a truly beautiful path leading to another wonderful landmark in Wakayama prefecture, Kumano Nachi Taisha and the Nachi Falls. The path itself is really worth a little walk. The stone stairs, the huge and old trees along the way (many of them being over 800 years old) both contribute to the quasi-mystical atmosphere of the place. Sometimes you’ll even see people wearing Heian era (794-1185) kimonos walking along. Here, posing for us, is our guide in Wakayama prefecture and one of his beautiful colleagues. For those who would enjoy this, the kimonos can be rented for the occasion near the entrance of the Daimonzaka path.
