Japan Days – Kumano Kodo

June 25,

Hiked the Kumano Kodō Trail today.  The trail is a chain of ancient pilgrimage routes that meander across Japan and the earliest records of use date back to as early at the 10th century!  Crazy!  It was so amazing – it literally felt like you stepped back in time walking through the rice fields, gardens, past creepy wood-carved figures, and tiny villages… and the mountain trails were just beautiful.  This is plum country and people would leave little snack packs of plums for sale in wooden huts for hikers to grab along the way.  Everything is so green and peaceful!
