From Daimonzaka bus stop through Kumano Nachi Taisha, Seiganto-ji (Temple of the Blue Waves), Sanjudo Pagoda, then to Nachi-falls is truly nice scenic route in the woods. If you have a half day, you can surely enjoy this route.
This trail is absolutely stunning and is very well sign posted. Free "trail sticks" to help with your balance are also on offer, just return them when you are done.
