On a smaller path following the Kumano Kodo from Totsukawa, the village of Hatenashi offers spectacular views, quaint farmhouses and crisp spring water. But it is most famous for its friendly elderly residents who greet passing hikers with a smile. Named one of Japan’s top 100 villages, its size belies its many charms.
