Japan Pt. 3

Kumano Kodo Pilgrimage
Day 2
Nakahechi Trail + Akagi-goe Trail


hours of walking
melt into seconds of bliss;
dance across the earth
dark cedar forest,
the mother and father slopes,
passing through the womb


*roof made entirely of straw!

wooden dick in a shrine!

descent into Yunomine

Over 800 year old tree;
may you out outlive us all!


The Creatures of Kumano Kodo!

forest crab

evil serpent spirit?
leave it your lunch.
