The ruins of Sano-oji
The ruins of Sano-oji are on your left as you head south along Route 42. It was one of the 99 ojis enshrining the mikogami of Kumano, used for yohai (a ceremony of worship from afar) and as a rest area. The name of Sano-oji is seen from the early Kamakura era. In more recent times it was a subordinate shrine of Nachi Taisha. There is a wood with a circumference of 400 m in the shrine grounds that was known as the ""Nyakuichi-oji Forest"". The shrine has now been abandoned and all that remains is the stone monument to the oji shrine ruins.
