Limit search to Wakayama Prefecture.
Koyasan Okunoin Koya-cho
We were lucky to have a fascinating monk lead us around for the day, pointing out the burial sites and historical references to almost every revered figure in Japanese history from Toyotomi Hideyoshi to Takeda Shi...
I love a nice tree and I have seen a few in my days but this location is the best I have seen yet (even better than Muir Woods!) the site is a 2 km stroll along a road that for 1200 years was the road into Koyasan...

Koyasan Danjo Garan Koya-cho
Nice temple and beautiful to view, it is located in a little 'park' with other smaller temples and trees which makes it a very nice and peaceful walk through the park to the temple.
We arrived here by the women's pilmigrimage trail, which is a fascinating path, and makes arriving at the temple site more interesting.

Kongobu-ji Temple Koya-cho
This temple complex containing both original and rebuilt temples will provide you with great sights and photo ops of the several architectural styles that can be appreciated in Japanese urgiste architecture.
One of the major sights in Koyasan
Kumano Hongu Taisha Shrine Tanabe
classic temple sites in the mountains - accessible by bus from several of the coastal towns (day pass allows flexibility!) with the bus journeys giving a great view of the blue water rivers!
The flooding in 1889 destroyed two of the three shrines (Upper, Middle and Lower) composing the shrine and it was only the Upper shrine that survived and transferred to the current site in 1891.
Kamikura Shrine Shingu
... it's a photogenic spot with an orange bridge and cherry blossom trees in the spring, and just past the first shrine is a 500 step steep trail with stone steps up to another shrine and a great view of the city,
On reaching the top, although only around 100m above the starting point, I felt the tremendous elation of a full cardio workout with tremendous views as a bonus.
Daimonzaka Nachikatsura-cho
If you are in the Osaka/Nara area or closer, and if you are interested in scenic nature or natural views, the Daimonzaka & Nachi Falls are MUST-DO experiences.
