We took an Australian customer ,working in Tokyo
down the sacred waterways of Kumano River,canoeing 2days trip.
That river is one of the UNESCO World Heritage Pilgrimage route,which is from Hongu to Shingu
It’s monsoon season, we got some rain before few days.
But we got Sun Shine today !
We were lucky, got a water on the river, we could put in the river just below
the Kumano Hongu Grand Shrine(The old one that we call “Oyunohara”),
that mean is we can run hole things of World Heritage Pilgrimage river route.
That not many time can run from there, water is very low normally.
He was a strong paddler so we were moving fast, get to camping site earlier.
I thought we can get to Shingu(end of the trip) earlier,and also better to him
if he can get back to Tokyo earlier so we ask to the train station for change a reservation.
Heavy rain was falling at the night ,the weather forcast said it might be rain tomorrow morning.
