Part | Gyuba-doji Guchi to Chikatsuyu-oji

The trail begins across Highway #311 from Kumano Kodo Nakahechi Michi-no-Eki rest stop. It is a short climb to the Hashiori-toge Pass where the small Gyuba-doji statue is located.

This statue shows Kazan, one of the first abdicated emperors to pilgrimage to Kumano, sitting on a horse and cow.

The trail descends a cobblestone staircase to a viewpoint of the Chikatsuyu Village below.

In the village across the Hiki-gawa River on your left is the Chikatsuyu-oji.
