Hi it is me Lim from Singapore.
Have you ever heard of Kumano Kodo – 熊野古道?
Kunanokodo is an ancient Pilgrimage Routes in the Kii Mountain Range and were named a World Heritage on July 7, 2004. It covers the three prefectures of Mie, Nara and Wakayama. It took me around 3 hours to get from Damonnzaka located in Wakayama Prefecture to Kumano Taisha.

If you ever have the chance to visit Wakayama, its a place worth visiting.
