Overall the entire experience was fantastic. Planning was effortless, and the trip itself couldn't have been more memorable or went more smoothly.
Ultimately what our travel agent planned for us was great, and turned out to be a way better match than what some others had proposed. In addition our agent made themselves available over the course of our trip to help us out and make sure everything went extra smoothly.
Watching the sunset and then the stars from a rental house we had all to ourselves in the mountains in Takahara. Catching our first glimpses of the Pacific ocean from a mountain pass as we neared Kumano Nachi Taisha and then seeing the shrine and waterfall itself resplendent in the afternoon light. Seeing the famous Torii gate of Miyajima at sunset. Standing in awe of the giant buddha at Tōdai-ji. Soaking in the famous waters of Yunomine Onsen and enjoying an incredible in room dining experience afterwards at a very nice Ryokan.
Walking the section of the Kumano Kodo between Kumano Hongu Taisha and Kumano Nachi Taisha which I modified our itinerary to accommodate turned out to be less interesting than I'd hoped. Taking a bus for these sections instead of walking would have perhaps freed up a day or two to spend elsewhere.
