This is the introduction of Nanki-Kumano,
my home country on the southeast in Japan.
This area is in the World Heritage sites,
which UNESCO designated as
"Sacred Sites and Pilgrimage Routes
in the Kii Mountain Range," in 2004.

I hope the following information of my own will help
overseas people get to know
about some traditional Japanese culture,
and visit such local areas with my home country
more and more in the future.
