Kumano Kodo Homes

Chikatsuyu Cherry Garden “Sakura-no-Sono” is a set of Japanese houses on the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage route on the west side of Chikatsuyu village, the first buildings on the left when entering the village. 

Both homes are lovingly maintained and elegantly decorated.  One room is in the "Family House", the same home as the family lives, offering a homestay style.  The neighboring house or "Annex" has two guestrooms with a lofty sitting area.  Next to the houses are terraced fields planted with cherry trees, from which the name of the accommodation is derived. From this vantage point guests have a view of the village. 

Meals are a combination of a delivery and handmade dishes for supper, and breakfast at a local café.

Only one group a day.
Sorry, Family House is Closed for the time being.
