Kumano Kodo, Japan - THIS WOMAN .. In retrospect, sometimes the highlight of a trip isn’t where you walked or what you saw but who you met. @kyoko_vendome is not only a remarkable artist, successful on a large scale but also known in the region for giving back, financially supporting trail maintenance and designing graphics that promote tourism to the historic sites of Kumano Hongu. With her joy, enthusiasm, local knowledge and boundless energy it’s no surprise she is in high demand as a mountain guide for the limited number of engagements she does each year.
