 Description

Kumano Kodo Homestay

Daimon-zaka Washoan Homestay is the expansive, traditional Japanese home of the lovely Ms. Tawara, situated beside terraced rice paddies lined with rocks covered in moss and lichen, the forested mountains rising above; a typical rural “Satoyama” landscape.

The first part of the name derives from its location near the base of the Daimon-zaka slope, a short but scenic section of the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage route, an ancient staircase lined with old-growth trees. 

Washoan is composed of three characters which mean 和 Peace/Harmony, 笑 Laugh/Smile, 庵 Retreat. 

A free pass to a nearby onsen hot spring bath is included, and meals are homecooked.

Private rental: only one group per day.

Daimon-zaka Washoan Homestay can only accept reservations 6 months or less in advance. 
Thank you for your understanding.

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.
