This is the introduction of Nanki-Kumano in Japan,
and my hometown on the southeast.
The Kii Mountain Range including this area
was recognized by UNESCO,
as the World Heritage sites,
"Sacred Sites and Pilgrimage Routes
in the Kii Mountain Range," in 2004.

I hope the following information of myself will help
overseas people get to know about some Japanese culture,
and visit such local area with my hometown
more and more in the future.
