Kodo Walkers


This route starts at, what some believe, is the oldest Shinto shrine, Hana-no-Iwaya, then to the dynamic rock formations of Onigajo, eroded by wind and sea over many millennia. Finally to Matsumoto pass, with its beautiful stone steps leading to the pass with a breathtaking view of Shichirimihama shoreline.

This short course is a treasure-trove of cultural and historical significance.

This tour starts from Kumanoshi Station, takes guests by taxi to Hana-no-Iwaya, Shishi-Iwa, and Onigajo. Guests then hike up and over Matsumoto-toge Pass back to Kumanoshi Station.

Please note: this tour includes a taxi. The taxi can not be canceled last minute without canceling the entire tour.
