  • You will be climbing a very steep staircase made of stone. There are many canes at the entrance of the stairs, but because it is a stair, the cane is hard to use. If you step off your foot or slip, you're sure to get seriously injured. It's a little difficult for the elderly. I want you to put on the handrail by all means.

  • A shrine that is part of a World Heritage Site climbs a very steep stone step. Before you go, it's a good idea to get ready and then go. It is a steep stone step of 538 steps. Moreover, it is a cliff rather than a stone step on the way. I think that it is good to bring a firm shoes and water and a drink. When I finished climbing the stone steps, I could see the beautiful scenery. The red seal is located in the nearby Kumano Hayatama Taisha Shrine. It is unattended. <紀伊山地の霊場と参詣道> three World Heritage Sites (Yoshino, Omine, Kumano Sanzan, Koyasan) and The Pilgrimage Route (Kumano Pilgrimage Road, Omine Okudo, Koyasan-cho Ishido)

  • This is a nice shrine; very small but at a great location. The stone stairs are very steep and it might be dangerous when it's raining and they get slippery. However, I doubt the official given number of stairs. Careful: google maps guides walkers to a place directly below the shrine, but not to the entrance where the staircase starts.
  • Good but it's a small hike. Stairs are just rocks + no handrail. Parking was no problem. Worth the walk but would highly recommend to have good shoes. Maybe not the best idea on a rainy day.
