Perched in front of the stunning Nachi Falls, the brilliant red three-story pagoda of Seigantoji Temple is a striking example of a man-made structure interacting in synergy with the natural environment. The temple is also attached to the Grand Shrine of Kumano Nachi-taisha — demonstrating the often harmonious relationship between Buddhism and Shintoism.
The temple is accessible by bus.Take the Kumano Kotsu Bus from Kii-Katsuura Station and ride 30-minutes to the Nachisan stop. The stop before Nachisan is Nachi-no-Taki-mae, the stop for Nachi Falls. Alternatively, take the bus from Shingu station and after 15-minutes, get off at Jinja Otera-mae.
