Description This ancient road which runs through Katsuragi, once the epicentre of politics and culture in its heyday, and along the base of Mt. Katsuragi and Mt Kongo, today offers hikers a gentle path to traverse and explore historical temples and shrines along the way. Once the domain of the powerful Katsuragi clan, the walk offers insight into the past with historical remnants dating back to the Yayoi period: bronze mirrors, pottery, and other artifacts. What to enjoy? Beautiful scenery chracterized by Japanese primrose in spring, understated Camellia in winter, and an abundance of other botanical species year round. The stately gates that open and frame the gardens of private homes offer a different kind of threshold. Venture to Katsuragi for an inspiring day rich in history and nature.
