Once you take a step here, it will give an illusion as if you were travelling through time into the ancient era ? this place has so unique atmosphere. At the entrance of Daimonzaka slope, there is a pair of over 800 year-old cedar trees showing so great presence.

世界遺産 熊野古道 大門坂を歩こう!
  
世界遺産 熊野古道 大門坂は、熊野那智大社に向かう約600mの石畳の階段道で、一歩踏み込むと「古の時代にタイムスリップしたのかな?」と錯覚してしまいそうな独特の雰囲気を持った場所です。大門坂入り口には、樹齢800年を超える夫婦杉があり、とても大きな存在感を感じます。

また、近くの大門坂茶屋では平安衣装がレンタルでき、当時のお姫様気分で記念撮影や周辺散策を楽しめます。
