One of the great shrines of the Kumano Sanzan, Kumano Nachi Taisha Grand Shrine is the origin of the ancient faith that worships Nachi Waterfall. The shrine is located halfway up Mt. Nachi, and vermilion-lacquered Shinto shrines can be seen lined up on the high ground that looks down at the ocean. The large camphor tree in the precincts is said to be 800 years old, and has a tunnel that visitors can pass through.
