Hama-kaido Road leads to "Kumano Hayatama-taisha Shrine," one of "Kumano Sanzan (three big shrine in)."
From Kumano city trail is along Shichiri-mihama Beach and Route 42. It is so hard to walk on beach that you can walk on bank or Route 42 if you don't have much physical strength.
There isn't no pass on this trail, but many pilgrims died when they cross rivers. There are some tombstones of them.
Let's try to get to Hayatama-taisha Shrine !
