Nigishima Pass & Okami Pass

Guardian Jizo Statue near Okami Pass

I walked the Nigishima/Okami Pass section of the Iseji Route between Owase and Kumano-shi on Sept. 27. There had been so much rain the two days before so there were waterfalls everywhere. Even the stone steps of the Kumano Kodo had become waterfalls in places. This is one of the least walked routes on the Iseji, and the natural beauty is a testament to this!
