Tanabe International English Guide Association (TIEGA) started in April ,2006.
With the registration of the Sacred Sites and Pilgrimage Routes in the Kii Mountain Range on the UNESCO World Heritage list, sightseeing places along Kumano Kodo Pilgrimage Routes in Wakayama Prefecture have been in the spotlight both from within and outside of Japan. For this reason it is urgent to make brochures and guidebook in Japanese as well as other languages and has also become important to train and educate tour guides.
TIEGA has been working on training and educating guides who can guide people both in Japanese and in English.

Tread the paths that remain little changed over the ages. Breathe in the crystal clear air and be revitalized. Experience the Kumano ancient pilgrimage routes in your own way. Find balance in a busy world just as others have through the ages.
Our English guidebook will help you stay on the trail. Historical background, myths and legends give meaning to the paths you take.
This book is dedicated to all those who walk the Kumano Kodo … Each person’s journey is unique…
Torii gates
Torii gates are often at the entrances to shrines and temples. They show the separation of the ordinary world and sacred areas.

Tanabe International Guide Association (TIEGA) supports “Wakayama Prefecture’s Hospitality Campaign!!!”

For visitors to Wakayama, we want to spread heartfelt “hospitality” which leads to comments from visitors such as, 

  ”I want to visit Wakayama again!”  and, 

  “I’m so glad I visited Wakayama!”

We recently registered our group with the “Hospitality” campaign through the Department of Wakayama Tourism Promotion.
