Take a trip to the Kumano Kodo, a network of ancient pilgrimage trails in the southern Kansai region where you can experience the route in a whole new way by donning a costume of the Heian era. At the starting point of the Kumano Kodo is Daimonzaka Chaya, located along the famous picturesque cobblestone staircase slope of Daimonzaka. Here, you can rent costumes worn by aristocrats of the Heian era – back then, it was customary for women of social standing to travel with veils covering their faces. There are various costume designs to choose from for both men and women of all age groups, and attending staff are always on site to assist you in wearing them.
Travel back in time to the Heian era with these colorful, elegant outfits that make for truly memorable commemorative photos of your trip as you stroll around Nachi Falls or visit the World Heritage sites like Kumano Nachi Taisha and Seigantoji Temple.
Take a Kumano Gobo Nankai Bus bound for Nachisan, get off at "Daimonzaka" stop, then walk 10 minutes to Daimonzaka Chaya.
