Our room was on the second floor and only Japanese toilets were available on that floor. The toilets were dirty and disgusting. I do not enjoy squatting to go to the toilet. But to squat and note how dirty the tile floors were was nauseating. Behind the toilet door was an assortment of cleaning items for the toilet which were...

We arrived at the hotel earlier than checked in time. We were allowed to drop our bags but almost immediately shown the door to get out. (If we could not check-in, at least allowed to have a drink at the restaurant?) We went wondering for a few hours then back. Better welcome the 2nd time. Being shown the room, etc....

First, the view from our ample room was spectacular. And this is the ONLY place to stay on the mountain in Nachisan. Yes, Nachisan can become like a carnival, but if you stay there, you'll find times when the tour buses are gone and the peace and beauty of the mountain really shine. Regarding the hotel, shared toilets are Japanese...

You can't do much better for location than the Mitakisanso. You are literally a ten minute walk from most of the Nachi shrine and temple site. Nachi falls is five minutes walk (right as you leave the front door) and the rest of the complex is straight up the hill. The rooms are average size and fairly basic, and the...

It is probably more a small hotel than a minshuku. Room is a little small but functional. Dinner was delicious! One of the better meals along the kodo. Service was excellent and warm. Lady owner's came around to make sure the hot chawanmushi was quickly eaten before it turned cold! Would recommend this especially for those trekking that treacherous trail...

We also were at the end of the Kumano Kodo hike and this place was a real disappointment. It's just very tired. It's got the same overt touristy/commercial vibe as the rest of Nachi. A far better option at the end of the hike is to stay in Kii Katsurra a 15 min bus ride away.

Overview; we quite liked this place but felt they could do better with just a few more smiles Arrival; arrived after a very hot, humid day of walking. Easy to find past the shops from the waterfall on the left. We were told about times for meals, bathing hours, the toilet location and taken to our room. It all seemed...

We arrived here at the end of a 6 day Kumano Kodo hike to be met by Japan's version of Basil Fawlty stalking the premises advising guests what they could and could not do. We were shooed out of the dining room while sharing a beer which "Basil" had told us to buy from the vending machine using notes, not...

My parents and my family of five stayed in two Japanese style rooms. They let us drop off our luggage before check-in and we hiked the Nachi Falls area. When we checked in, we had hot tea and tea cookies in our rooms. Our dinner there was the best meal of our trip, really special with wine and Nachi mountain...
