The primitive forest grows luxuriantly, with plank walkways and enjoy walking along the old road, which remains like it was in prosperous days, and crossing the Miya River and walk over the Miyagawa Bridge to enter your travel destination of Ise. However, it is not possible to walk the full course in a day trip, and the path is steep, so it is intended for experienced hikers.

Getting There: One hour by bus from Kintetsu Mise station and a three-hour walk to the trail head.
