The modern Kumano Hongu Heritage Center is located in front of the Kumano Hongu Taisha (Grand Shrine), the geographical and spiritual center of the sacred Kii Mountain Range. 

All of the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage routes lead to Hongu, the traditional “crossroads” of the Kii Peninsula, in Wakayama Prefecture.
