The owners of this minshuku opened today especially for us - there were a total of 6 guests, we weren't part of the same group. The owners were so friendly, the place was warm and clean, wifi connected in my room, and the place was spacious. Loved the look out from the dining room to the flowing river. Really enjoyed...

We are hikers but like to be in clean hotel. So this hotel with 8 rooms is very clean and meet more than our needs. There are common toilets and washing area. Communal hot bath are some steps away from the main building. There is a paid washing machine ¥200 per wash and ¥100 for 30 mins drying. The rooms...

After a pleasant day's walk from Takijiri along the Nakahechi track on the Kumano Kodo we arrived at this comfortable retreat. It has a peaceful riverside location facing beautiful trees in autumn colours and a relaxing onsen. The hosts were exceptional in their attention and care for weary walkers. The dinner was undoubtedly the best Japanese meal we had; the...

I was expecting a family home, and no doubt it is, but is more like a cross between a family home and a hotel. There are several japanese bedrooms, a dining room, a tea room and separate onsen only a few steps away from the main building. I was with a tour otherwise it might be a bit difficult to...

Small but nice rooms. Onsen in separate building which is not supernice and doesn't seem very clean. Also not available in the morning. Dinner was ok but i don't agree with all good comments on TripAdvisor - just ordinary. And breakfast was a disappointment. Just some fruit and a little bread. Not to speak of the lunchbox - two pieces...

Beautiful family-run Minshuku on the river. Stopped in here while hiking the Kumano-Kodo trail from Tanabe and thoroughly enjoyed it. The location by the river is lovely. The place is simple, but tidy and clean, and the baths are very enjoyable. The family is lovely and cooked a splendid dinner and offered us much advice on our next day's hike...

My boyfriend and I stayed here after a day of hiking on the Kumano Kodo trail. The room was reserved for us by the company that arranged the hike, but we were very happy to stay here. It appears to be a small family-run place (operated by a man & wife, and their son & daughter-in-law) that felt like a...
