My mysterious, fateful and lasting connection to Koyasan and Kumano

Years ago, at a time when I was young and completely preoccupied with work, fate brought me to Shukubo lodgings on Koyasan during a trip through the majestic Kii region.

For someone like me who had been raised in the city, I had never experienced such fierce sunlight, such rain and wind, such rich and living forests, nor such lovingly prepared food.

Ever after, I have been in love with Koyasan and Kumano.

Some time later I got married, and my father-in-law’s hometown was Shirahama Town in Wakayama Prefecture; this meant that I was now practically related to the Nanki region.

Thanks to the invitation of Ms. Neko Oikawa, I have been involved over the past several years with this project to support Wakayama Prefecture, and it has inspired me to dive ever deeper into this grand and sacred land.

I have a mysterious, fateful and lasting connection to Koyasan and Kumano, and I will continue to do what I can to support them.
