A real pearl full of poetry in a beautiful location. An unmissable, romantic place to rest during the strenous days of trek for Kumano Kodo trail or to take a break of good food, music and warmth far away the stressfull cities. The kind owner speaks a perfect Spanish, because love Flamenco. Please, ask him to play for you and you may have a unforgettable night. One of the most traditional site of Japan , with a strong feeling of spirituality and love for nature.

Kiri-no-sato Takahara Lodge is one of the best mountain getaways I have EVER been to. It totally exceeded my expectations in every way. The price is super reasonable, even when considering that my wife and I went during a national holiday time of year. The dinner and breakfast were both 5-star quality and easily worth $90 per person just for that -- the dinner was 9+ courses, including sushi, japanese pickles, chilled sesame tofu, miso soup, fish and chips, sukiyaki, fried tofu with vegetables, roasted wild boar, a pizza cooked in a real wood oven, and fermented peaches. In our room, we had very comfortable beds, a great view across the mountain valley, DIY coffee, air conditioning, and a very calm relaxing atmosphere. Just a short walk down the hall was the onsen which was also very relaxing with a nice mountain view. I really can't think of anything that would make our experience better, because Jian has thought of everything already! He's a very welcoming host and even came to pick us up in his jeep during the pouring rain when we got lost hiking through the woods. I don't visit many places twice, because usually it's "been there, done that!" but I cannot wait to return! It's like a little slice of paradise! Also don't worry about language issues because Jian speaks fluent Japanese, English, and Spanish.

We spent our first night along the Kumano Kodo here and were so happy we did - the enthusiastic staff that greeted us when we arrived was our first clue this was a special place. We loved the rustic lodge feel coupled with all the amenities: cozy robes, amazing Onsen overlooking the mountains, roaring fireplace!, homemade plum wine, organic French and Italian wines, delicious meals( the mackerel at breakfast is NOT to be missed!), I could go on and on. Do yourself a favor if you’re hiking the KK- stay here or at the very least, stop here for lunch and enjoy Japanese hospitality at its best!

The lodge is located on top of a hill and overlooks the valley as well as an incredible panoramic background of the nearby mountain ranges. All rooms are situated so that you have this view from the sliding glass door of your room. Onsen at the lodging was beautiful. They are separated by sex with a window that overlooks a view of the mountain range. The room is large and included a private bathroom as well as a television and free internet. Sleeping on a futon was as comfortable as sleeping in a bed. This was a pleasant surprise for us. The dinner at the lodging was out of this world. The endless dishes were an incredible display of presentation and gourmet food. A culinary experience such as this is a lifetime experience not to be missed . The owner is a friendly gentleman who takes pleasure in entertaining all his guest. He was friendly and spoke excellent English and Spanish. If I could give this establishment 6 stars I would. Treat yourself to this experience. You won’t be disappointed.

The lodge is located in the ridge top village of Takahara overlooking the Hatenashi mountain range. Beautiful views from the lodge over looking the valley below, the onsen are also great. The staff were very friendly and welcoming The meals are delicious with many of the ingredients being produced locally. Would surely stay there again

My wife, and I stayed at the “Organic Hotel” on 10/21 with an REI tour group that was hiking the Kumano Kodo & Nakasendo trails. We are now home, but we have brought with us so many wonderful memories. First, the hotel and rooms overlook the beautiful hills and village below. The meals were delicious and artfully presented Japanese dishes with a twist. The owner/operator, Jian, is the 'spice' that makes the dish! He brings his own travel experiences to the food preparation. Not only that, Jian is a warm and welcoming host. We can't wait to return and spend more time! Bill & Isabelita Stelzner

This is the usual first night after beginning Kumano walk. not very much to do out of it as it is “in the mountain”. Nevertheless the personnel is really friendly and will do their best to make you feel good. In our case they got it. It looks more a mountain refugee than a hotel but the food is fantastic, the views magnificent, the silence guaranteed and the option to make new friends during dinner/breakfast of beer time, are on the table.

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.

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.
