    ... complete with a view of the valley below. Stunning!
    That afternoon we drove (then walked) to Gyuba-doji Statue(s) which depict retired Emperor Kazan (968-1008) riding a cow and a horse. It is believed his was the first imperial pilgrimage to Kumano. Next stop was the Nonaka-no-Shimizu spring. This was the area where Hiraoki's father was raised. Then we climbed to the Toganoki-jaya Teahouse and the Hidehira-zaura cherry tree. The trees were ...

    ... there was a knock on our door, and an attendant in a kimono bowed to us, then came in, bowed several more times and served us tea and snacks. She also brought kimonos to fit each of us (a 3 XL for Scot), so we could head to the onsen to soak in the special hot spring water next to the ocean.

    We stopped for photos under ...
