Toganoki Tea House, Kumano Kodo pilgrimage route, Wakayama prefecture

The Toganoki tea house is a traditional private bed and breakfast lodging popular with pilgrims and tourists on the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage route.

Crisscrossing the Kii Hanto, the largest Peninsula of Japan, Kumano Kodo consists of ancient trails still used for the pilgrimage to the sacred site "Kumano Sanzan", or the Three Grand Shrines of Kumano: Kumano Hongu Taisha, Kumano Nachi Taisha and Kumano Hayatama Taisha.

The Kumano Kodo and Kumano Sanzan, along with Koyasan and Yoshino and Omine, became a UNESCO World Heritage Site on July 7, 2004 as the "Sacred Sites and Pilgrimage Routes in the Kii Mountain Range".
