The Kumano Kodo pilgrimage network of trails in Japan traces its roots back 1000 years to when emperors and samurai would trek these forested rural paths to Japan's most important sacred shrines and temples. This beautiful trek is a UNESCO World Heritage trail, the only such trail besides its sister trail, the El Camino del Santiago in Spain. It is a challenging hike with significant ascents and descents. Each evening, you stay in a local traditional Japanese inn, partake in the ritual evening bath, and enjoy the outstanding local cuisine. In today's show, we interview world nomad and fellow travel blogger Sherry Ott of Ottsworld.com about her five-day trek of the Nakahechi trail. An avid worldwide hiker, Sherry puts the Kumano Kodo trail in her top 5 trails!
