‘Koya Bound’ is a beautiful interactive One Pager and photographic record of Dan Rubin and Craig Mod’s eight days walking on the Japanese pilgrimage path, Kumano Kodo. As you scroll down, the photos correlate with the map to the right, giving more context to the journey. At the bottom they promote the (limited edition) print version of the adventure. A great reference to long-form journalism in a Singe Page website – also promoting a product. (this screenshot was very difficult to capture and it’s about 1/50th of the actual site length, so make sure you check out the live site)

Template and javascript by Codrops. Koya-san — home to esoteric Buddhism — is the name of a sacred basin eight hundred meters high and surrounded by eight mountains. It is roughly one hundred kilometers of trails north from the Kumano Hongu Taisha shrine in Wakayama, Japan. Though the name of the basin is often incorrectly translated as Mt. Koya in English, Mt. Koya is only one of the eight peaks, and is remote from the central cluster of temples. We walked towards Koya-san, but we did not touch Mt. Koya.
