Minshuku Nakano

Chikatsuyu/Nonaka Minshuku

Minshuku Nakano is a family run guesthouse located in the southern part of Chikatsuyu village.  Originally it was frequented by fishermen looking to catch the delicious Ayu sweetfish that thrive in the nearby Hiki-gawa river (the owner is an avid fisherman himself), but recently they have opened their home and hearts to walkers and pilgrims on the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage route.  It is located 10 minutes on foot from the Chikatsuyu-oji.
