To trip in search of "good luck" that history and nature brought up.
Walked; only with "good luck" way which links Kumano to Ise.

Kumano pilgrimage is the fashion among nobles taking advantage of nature faith that God dwells in huge rock or waterfall being born in the ground of Kumano in ancient old days, and Kumano going out of Shirakawa ex-emperor having been performed in the Heian era.
