Collecting two more Kumano Kodo stampsFebruary 29 in Japan ⋅ 🌧 7 °C
As we have mentioned in our earlier blog posts, collecting the stamps along the Komano Kodo is both fun, but it is also important to collect all of the stamps along the route to ensure we get our completion stamp at the end of our trek. This will ensure that we receive a pilgrim designation. Throughout the day today, it was raining. The rain really started to pick up in the afternoon. However, there were two stamps we required that were a 2 km walk from our Minshuku. Despite the rain, we all put on our rain gear, grabbed our umbrellas and made the trek for two more stamps. I’m so glad we decided to head out in the rain again because it was a beautiful, albeit wet, walk. We again saw huge trees and a beautiful gate leading up to a shrine. It was well worth the walk and we got two more stamps.
