Tanabe is most famous as the place where many Kumano Kodo pilgrims start their pilgrimage into the mountains. The Kumano Kodo is an ancient pilgrimage road that heads across the Kii Peninsula all the way to the Kumano Grand shrines on the east of the peninsula, and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Wakayama region, which includes Tanabe, is considered the spiritual heartland of Japan and has had visitors for centuries make the pilgrimage here to enjoy the lush scenery and to worship the gods that live here. Another popular sight in Tanabe is the Kushimoto Marine Park, which is a complex with a range of attractions including an aquarium and an underwater observation tower.
