A very pleasant family-run minshuku in Chikatsuyu on the Kumano Kodo trail. Rooms are smallish but all you need to lay out your futon for the evening. The inn is in a secluded area away from the centre of the village, so it's quiet at night. The onsen is next door and has good, minerally water. Open the windows and... More

We stayed here for one night whilst walking the Kumano Kodo trail. The family running the minshuku could not have been more welcoming. They went out of their way to prepare a vegetarian meal for one of our party and to explain all of the lovely dishes that had been cooked for our evening meal. They also spent time after... More

The tourist office (great one!) of Tanabe organised this minshuku for us, only a day before.They gave us a A4 paper with all the information needed about this guesthouse. It was very easy to find it once we arrived in Chikatsuyu thanks to the map we had been given. We were 2, and they gave us a room apparently for... More

Arrival; The accommodation was very easy to find, turn first left after the footbath that was most welcome after walking. Had a lovely greeting, shown the onsen, just outside next to the river. Choice of dining in the Western or Japanese room. Room; Japanese style, generous size, separate toilets along the corridor, sinks in a shared area, all very clean.... More

The inn has very comfortable rooms for a minshuku and has a lovely setting along side the river in Chikatsuyu. Lovely kind hosts. Our room was a sizable tatami room with toothbrush and towel, access, and television. Clean with nice large onsen bath in the exterior bath house. I enjoyed the peace and quiet and would very happily stay here... More

The food was so well prepared and the whole place was beautiful, clean, and centrally located. Somehow the photos online do not convey the beauty and traditional nature of this lovely inn--nestled in lively mountains and near the center of a charming town. The atmosphere was highly organized and it is worth repeating: the cooking was superb.

The food is amazing and extremely fresh (even in the middle of winter!). The cuisine was sophisticated and the atmosphere was warm and friendly. The room was immaculate, tasteful and quite cozy. I highly recommend this lovely family-run spot!

We liked everything with this place. It has very clean, good-sized rooms with a view of the surrounding mountains. There is an onsen belonging to the hotel just a few metres away. Dinner was delicious and we received plenty of food, they even catered to vegetarians. The owner was incredibly friendly and helpful, he also speaks quite a bit of... More

I felt instantly welcomed here. After walking from Hongu, I was tired and wet, but the indoor onsen was perfect and the owner was warm and kind. The dinner was incredible: delicious food and more than enough for one person. The owner communicated with me in English throughout my stay and was very helpful and hospitable. Definitely stay here, especially... More

This was the least hospitable Japanese hotel that I had stayed in. They even fussed about providing the traditional hot tea in our room. There was no soap for washing hands. The bathroom was communal and shared by both men and women. In every other place that we had stayed, the futons were laid out while we had supper. I... More
