Fresh greenery along the Otonashi-gawa River(Otonashi-gawa no Shinryoku)


The river flowing into Oyunohara

Kumano Hongu Taisha Grand Shrine was once located on a sandbank where the Kumano-gawa River, Iwata-gawa River and Otonashi-gawa River merge. There were no bridges over the Otonashi-gawa River, so pilgrims used to walk across the river to purify themselves before going to the grand shrine. This is the scenery along the upstream of the river in the season of fresh greenery.
