Shingu City is the heart of cultural and economic development in the Kumano region and is located in the southeastern part of the Kii Peninsula. The "Kumano faith", rooted in ancient natural worship, has been handed down for generations, surrounded by the forest, which accounts for 90% of the city, the Kumano-gawa River, and rich natural features such as the Kumano-nada Sea.
