After a tiring uphillpp ptrek to this inn I was welcomed by great staff, great food, lovely room, and beautiful views. Definitely a place to stay. I generally only review on trip advisor if the place Was great or horrible. This place gets full marks for being great. And the owner is really a delight and speaks good English and... More

My husband and I were both very delighted with our stay at the 霧の郷 たかはら. It was such a wonderful experience and the meals were fantastic. Let's start with booking, I found it was a little interesting if you book on their official website and other website, the prices are different. If you can book with Japanese, it is the... More

We had an absolutely wonderful stay! We wanted to take 3 days off from our busy Japanese trips of visiting cities, and we were so happy with out choice. The location is up in the mountains of the central Wakayama prefecture, in a secluded quaint village. John was super helpful with directions to the hotel, via phone before our trip.... More

We stayed at Kiri no Sato for our first night of our Kumano Kodo walk and it was the best stay of the walk. The food was wonderful and the room was nice with attached toilet. The shared baths are nice and warm and it was great to take a bath after our first day of hiking. It is obvious... More

I started my short trek from Takiriji - Takahara (took 1.15hrs, I had to walk fast due to sun going down and didn't want to get stuck up in the mountain when it was getting dark). I had the western style room and it was wonderful. Amazing view from your own room and the Onsen was perfect way to end... More

This is a lovely place to stay. Small enough to be personal and yet big enough to meet some other walkers. The rooms have magnificent views across the valley, the bath was large and very well laid out, the food was special (fresh and delicious). It all made for a great stay.

This is the best stay we had in Japan: authentic, friendly, delicious, beautifully decorated, and very comfortable. The rooms are super romantic with amazing view. It is furnished with a western bed, and all the comfort. The small village is the gateway to the Kumano Kodo trek which is more than a walk: a pilgrimage! The temple in the village... More

We got a bus from Tanabe station and were picked up by the friendly manager of the Lodge. We had a lovely night here to begin our walk. We had travelled down from Tokyo by train so it made sense to have a night here and walk out the next day. This government lodge is after all the entry to... More

We stayed here on the first of our five nights on the kumano kodo trail and were thoroughly impressed. The lodge has the ambiance of a mountain hideaway, a modern cabin-y feel and very friendly service. The manager spoke excellent English and was a great host, going between the tables at dinner and socialising and introducing the dishes. The food... More

It was awesome to arrive here after walking from Takijiri with steep and quite demanding walk.We regretted that we booked only one night stay instead of two! Love the scenery with spectacular mountains view,and love the food there so much,all the food served were freshly picked locally thus they named " Organic Hotel". The operator there Mr Jion also add... More
