Tourist Information

Kumano Travel This community-run travel agency can help you organise your whole Kumano Kodō trek. You can book accommodation (and pay by credit card), store your luggage (¥500 per item per day) or have it shipped elsewhere on your route (price varies), pick up detailed maps, bus schedules and last-minute supplies, and have any questions addressed in fluent English. Walk straight out of Kii-Tanabe Station, cross the main intersection and it's on your right.

Tanabe Tourism Information Centre In front of Kii-Tanabe Station, with English-speaking staff and lots of local info, including a great map marked with restaurants that have English menus and bus schedules.
