Dawn on Nachi Bay（Nachiwan-no Yoake）
The rising sun bathes Nachi Bay in light.
The Nachisan Observatory, which is located in the middle of the Nachisan Skyline, a roadway that connects Mt. Nachisan and Mt. Myohozan, has been selected as one of the “100 Best Places for the Sunrise and Sunset in Wakayama Prefecture.” From the Observatory, you can see the morning sun paint Nachi Bay orange as it rises over the horizon.
* If you are visiting Myohozan Amida-ji Temple by walking the Kakenuke-michi path of the Nakehechi route, you can go to a lookout spot (called “Tsukimigahara”) in the precincts of temple, another site from which a full view of Nachi Bay can be enjoyed.
To the Nachisan Observatory: 10 minutes by car from the Nachisan Parking Lot.
To Myohozan Amida-ji Temple: From Kumano Nachi Taisha Grand Shrine or Nachisan Seiganto-ji Temple, follow the “Kakenuke-michi” path of the Kumano Kodo’s Nakahechi route – 70 minutes’ walk.
