Here is a video of the JR Kii Tanabe Station.

Kii Tanabe is a sleepy little town, known for historic sites, temples and shrines.  Kii Tanabe is famous for the Kumano Hongu Taisha Shrine, which is one of the three sacred shrines of the "Kumano Sanzen" of the "Kumano Kodo" (Kumano Ancient Road, which is a old pilgrimage route from Kumano to Kyoto). 

Kumano Kodo is recognized as by the UNESCO World Heritage site. Also, a good stretch of the old Kumano Kodo still exists from Kii Tanabe towards Wakayama City. 

Unfortunately the Shrine is about two hour bus ride from JR Kii Tanabe Station, so if you are planning to visit the shrine, please get there early.
