The Kumano Kodo is one of two UNESCO World Heritage pilgrimage routes, the other being the Way of St. James (Camino de Santiago). A “Dual Pilgrim Passport” program was created to celebrate and honor those who complete both pilgrimage routes. There are 2 sides to the passport, one for the Kumano Kodo and the other for the Way of St James. Pilgrims collect stamps along the trail as a record of the walk. Some days we saw just one stamping station while other days we earned four stamps!
