Barked hinoki cypress trees（Kawa o haida hinoki）
Red hinoki cypress trees standing together in large numbers
In the area of Tsukimigaoka-jinja Shrine in the Kumano Kodo / Dainichi-goe, hinoki cypress trees with red trunks stand together in large numbers. This is because the bark of these trees were collected to be used for cypress bark roofs of structures including Kumano Hongu Taisha Grand Shrine. Trees barked by a skilled craftsman will return to their original state after several years.
Walk for five minutes from Oyunohara, the original shrine ground of Kumano Hongu Taisha Grand Shrine, to the approach of Dainichi-goe. Climb a steep grade from the approach for approximately 20 minutes toward Tsukimigaoka-jinja Shrine.
