Kaizuka Private Half-Day Walking Tour with Buddhist Temples

Kaizuka Private Half-Day Walking Tour with Buddhist Temples

Osaka is famous for its main tourist attractions, such as shopping and eating, but there are areas with a rich history where life has been lived for hundreds of years. Kaizuka, a 30-minute train ride from downtown Osaka and only 15 minutes from Kansai Airport, is packed with hidden gems that only locals know. The town has long developed around temples, with the head temple of Japan's largest Buddhist sect being located here during the Warring States period. As a result, many traditional-style townhouses from the late Edo to Showa periods have survived. It is particularly surprising that there are 13 old private houses registered as national cultural properties, and that there are people still living in them today. On this tour, you will have the opportunity to experience the Japanese lifestyle that has remained since ancient times while deepening your interaction with the people who live in Kaizuka. A journey full of attractions that can only be experienced in the area awaits you.

【Private Tour】Mt.Koya & Kumanokodo Walking 3-Day tour (Round trip from Osaka)

【Private Tour】Mt.Koya & Kumanokodo Walking 3-Day tour (Round trip from Osaka)

A private guide will accompany you from Osaka。 If you’re looking to do a trek in Japan, you’re probably considering either the Kumano Kodo, which is in Wakayama (southern Kansai), or the Nakasendo, which connects Tokyo and Kyoto via the mountains of Central Honshu. Since the Nakasendo has become popular in recent years, we find that the Kumano Kodo gives you a more authentic and less touristy experience of the Japanese countryside. The Kumano Kodo is actually a network of several ancient pilgrimage routes that converge on Kumano Hongu Taisha Shrine, a powerful Shinto shrine in the mountainous heart of Wakayama Prefecture. Hongu Taisha is the most important of three famous shrines known as the Kumano Sanzan. The other two, Kumano Nachi Taisha and Kumano Hayatama Taisha, are both near the eastern coast of Wakayama and are connected to Hongu Taisha by well-traveled pilgrimage routes.
