In Search of the Best Food on Kumano Kodo Pilgrimage Trail

Japan by Food -- May 23
Take a hike with Shizuka through Wakayama's ancient pilgrimage trail, the Kumano Kodo. Through the misty mountains and ancient trees, Shizuka explores the hidden restaurants along the way.

Her journey leads to a restaurant made entirely of wood, blending into the forest, where she samples 100% buckwheat noodles. At another restaurant, Shizuka tries a rice bowl featuring fresh deer. Finally, she ends the food tour on a sweet note with hot springs coffee and a gooey-chewy treat. With weary and rain-soaked feet, Shizuka makes it to the trail's end and visits Kumano Hongu Taisha.
