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.

The tour starts from Hana-no-Iwaya parking lot for guests who arrive by their own vehicle. 

The guide will explain Hana-no-Iwaya and Shishi-Iwa for those who arrive at the Hana-no-Iwaya parking lot, then follow the guide to Onigajo Center parking lot in their own vehicle. Leaving their own vehicles, the tour then visits Onigajo, proceeds up and over Matsumoto-toge Pass, and back down to the Onigajo Center parking lot to conclude the tour.
