Fushiogami Teahouse
It is here that the pilgrims who followed the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage route got their first distant glimpse of Kumano Hongu Taisha, the present Oyunohara. The name Fushiogami comes from the pilgrims kneeling in worship to express their gratitude. There is a small stone shrine and a memorial tower dedicated to Izumi Shikibu in the remains of the Fushiogami-oji shrine.
With its view of Kumano River in the distance and its vast tea plantations, this area was used as a location for the NHK drama "Honmamon", which was broadcast in 2001~2002. There is a rest area called "Fushiogami Teahouse" and a public lavatory.
