 Description

Five-star Guesthouse

Blue Sky Guesthouse is a guesthouse tucked into a small valley in the town of Hongu, close to the World Heritage Grand Shrine, Kumano Hongu Taisha. 

The young owner, Naoya Yamamoto, always dreamed of owning his own guesthouse.  When he travelled to other countries he received gracious hospitality from many people.  He now wants to give back into the karmic travellers’ cycle and create a place that welcomes visitors to fully experience the area. 

Each room has its own bath and toilet.  Visitors also have free access to the kitchen and internet.  For those walking the Kumano Kodo or looking for somewhere to stay for multiple nights, this accommodation is a popular choice.  Families also find the Blue Sky Guesthouse convenient.

Vegetarianism is not common in the Japanese countryside. Please double-check the Vegetarian Type which the service provider can accommodate to make sure that it meets your needs. Often being able to eat trace amounts of the ubiquitous Katsuo Dashi (fish stock) makes it easier to find options.
