Mitaki Sanso

Nachi-Katsuura Minshuku

Mitaki Sanso has the privilege of being the only accommodation on Nachisan, located just below the Kumano Nachi Taisha and Seiganto-ji Temple. "Mitaki 美滝" means "beautiful waterfall", and "Sanso 山荘" can be translated as "mountain villa, mountain retreat, or mountain cottage", is an appropriate name for this lodging in the mountains with beautiful views of the Nachi waterfall, at 133 meters, the tallest in Japan and worshipped as a deity.  The owner is also the chef and uses local produce in dishes.  It is a convenient base for walkers on the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage route who are starting or finishing the Ogumotori-goe section. Being located on Nachisan has lent a sort of religious feel to this accommodation, as it often hosts pilgrims to the area.  Please familiar yourself with Japanese etiquette before you arrive. And also be sure to check-in by 18:00 at the latest.
