Cozy Rental House

Guest House AGAE (pronounced "ah-gah-eh") is a lovingly renovated rental house in Chikatsuyu village. The building is fully furnished, with the deep brown wood of the beams adding atmosphere.  It was the dream of Ms. Ono to run a guesthouse after returning to her hometown after 2 decades of working abroad.  After searching for many years for the right place, she found it near the edge of Chikatsuyu settlement near the local A-coop grocery store, a very convenient location.  As a local guide, she hopes to host and meet other pilgrims to share her passion for Chikatsuyu and the Kumano Kodo. There are two rooms available, one Japanese-style, and one Western-style, each with its own entrance and washing area and toilet. Only the Japanese-style room has a bathtub and kitchen. The Western-style room has a shower.

MEALS: Meals and bentos are provided by local cafes. See details below.

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.
