Kumano Sankeimichi Nakahechi 熊野参詣道 中辺路
This pilgrimage route was mostly used for the pilgrimage from Kyoto or West Japan to Kumano Sanzan and it turns to East at Kiitanabe to the Mountains. Boats were usually used between Kumano Hongu Taisha and Kumano Hayatama Taisha, however, the rest of the route was steep mountain road. It's characteristic is the fact that there are "Oji" which enshrine the child god of Kumano and their remains.
