Nabiki-ishi Rock along the Kumano-gawa River（Kumano-gawa-no Nabiki-ishi）
Gigantic rock fluttering in the wind
If you take a boat ride down the Kumano-gawa River, which is registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for serving as a river pilgrimage route, numerous scenic spots and odd-shaped rocks appear one after another on both sides of the river. The Nabiki-ishi Rock is a diagonal rock formation that looks as though it is fluttering in the wind.
Get on the Kumano Kotsu Bus at a stop near JR Shingu Station or Kumano Hongu Taisha Grand Shrine, and get off at “Michi-no-Eki Kumano-gawa”[道の駅熊野川] stop. Then, board a river boat (kawabune) from the Kumano-gawa River Traditional Boat Tour Center (Kawabune Center).
