Kumano Kodo Logistics / How to guide 1 (December, 2023)

No permission to download
My wife and I recently walked the Nakahechi trail of the Kumano Kodo. When we returned, I put together a Getting Started / How to / Logistics guide. My intent was not to describe the Kumano Kodo in any detail, but to answer the questions most people (i.e. me) would have in advance, and to introduce others to the resources most helpful for detailed planning. The chapter heads are as follows:

-- Extremely Brief Introduction: What Is the Kumano Kodo and Why This Guide?
-- Resource numero uno – Tanabe City Kumano Tourism Bureau
--Resource numero due: Google Knows Everything
--Which Route Should I Travel / Stages?
--Getting to the Nakahechi
--Accommodations & Food (Plus Futons, Onsens and Yukatas)
--Stopping Places on the Trail
--Arranging Your Kumano Kodo
--Navigating the Kumano Kodo: Signage and GPS
--Getting Your Merit Badge: The Dual Pilgrim Certificate
--Shipping Your Extra Crap
--When To Go
--Phones and Electronics
--Money in Japan
--Travel to Japan
--Travel within Japan
--Travel on the Kumano Kodo
