Along the main Kumano Kodo trail along the ridge line, having a vantage point over the rice paddies and valley. Great hospitality, serving meals mainly from the locality. Owner was helpful and gave us a lift down to the busstop when it was storming.

Hotel's Favorite
Very comfortable room. Particularity impressed by electric coffee peculator and fresh coffee (hard to get good coffee in Japan) in the room. Wonderful Japanese banquet dinner and equally impressive breakfast, with local produce. Our host Jian played Spanish guitar music in the evening. The attention to detail was evident everywhere and we felt very well looked-after. This was the first night of our 11-day hike, and while we also stayed in many other great places, the Organic hotel set the standard.

Of all the inns we stayed in while walking the Kumano Kodo, this is the only one I'm bothering to recommend, because it stands out in my memory. Extra brownie-points awarded for: # glass of cold, lemon water offered as soon as we walked in the door, # coffee percolator in room, # wild, foraged local food at dinner, # peanut tofu, # comfortable bed, # substantial breakfast, # interesting lunch.

One of us was celebrating her birthday on the day at Takahara. The owner, Jian played the guitar and sang for celebration! He really sounded like a professional Flamenco musician. Besides he is always smiling, encouraging, helpful and funny. The other staff are from various countries to make this place even more special. They pay attention to every detail of their services and food (organic local ingredients). It was great fun to find each ingredient in every dish we had. Our Western-style breakfast included hand-made bread (one roll by the owner's wife and the other one by a French man). Everything was so tasty and we ate too much! We enjoyed their UMESHU (plum wine) at night, which was also great. At the terrace we could enjoy the changing scenery because of misty fog in the daytime and twinkling stars at night over a glass of plum wine or coffee. In the morning I explored the area and felt the existence of wild animals and birds (pheasant, deer and monkey to name a few). I wish we could stay a few more days next time. Thank you for the wonderful time. 英語で何文字書いても文字数不足になるので日本語でも…なにしろ滞在が楽しくなる!お食事にしても、細部にハートがこもっていて、またオーナーの温かく楽しいラテンのノリに、楽しくならない人はいません(笑)

We stayed here on our first night hiking the Kumano Kodo and were overwhelmed by the beauty of the view, the friendliness of the hosts and the quality of the food. We enjoyed the relaxing onsen as well as the homemade plum wine. One of the best meals we had on the walk... still think about that cherry tomato.
