Minshuku Chikatsuyu

Chikatsuyu/Nonaka, Nakahechi Minshuku

Minshuku Chikatsuyu is a small guesthouse located in the Chikatsuyu village along the Hiki-gawa River.  The Hisui-no-yu onsen is a hot spring bath next to the inn.  The water is famous for its smooth texture.  Minshuku Chikatsuyu is popular with pilgrims and walkers on the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage route.  One of their specialty dishes is ayu (sweet fish) rice.  The view from the dining room opens onto the river and mountains beyond.  This is a popular Minshuku because of its quiet and peaceful location.
