A Journey of the Soul through the Kii Peninsula

From walking along historic pilgrimage trails to learning the unique methods of collecting seafood in the nature-rich waters of Ise-Shima, the Kii Peninsula is the ideal destination to learn about the culture and traditions of this part of Japan.
It's time to say our final farewells to Wakayama and Mie. From the unique local culture to the breathtaking sceneries, the two prefectures are a place for encounters to wonderful aspects exclusive to the area. Come and find another side of yourself at the homeland of beautiful sacred sites.
