A place once synonymous with mountain ascetic training, the Kunisaki Peninsula heeds thousands of stone statues reminiscent of its 1,300 year history. Trekking along any section of the 137 km long trail brings unanticipated natural beauty and rock formations that will surely make you realize why the local residents still pay homage to some of these sights today. There’s a serene and unexplainable feeling that accompanies you as you spend time on the peninsula.

Passed on from ancient times in Japan, there exist “Shinto”, which looks up in nature, and “Buddhism” which seeks the way of life as human being.
Back in the old days, in Kunisaki Peninsula which is surrounded by rocks and peaks,, a mountain religion called “Rokugo-Manzan” was born by introducing Buddhism into Usa Hachiman Shinto religion.
Acknowledging their differences, both live together in the land of Kunisaki.
The symbiosis between Human and Nature is still inherited and alive after 1,300 years.
