Traditional Japanese Mountain Resort

Guest House Kisho is an expansive set of traditional Japanese houses in the far reaches of the steep mountains of Ryujin village, Wakayama Prefecture.  The surrounding environment is lush forests, crystal clear rivers, and a touch of classic Japanese gardens.  The owner is a Japanese Canadian that brings this classic mountain retreat to life with a dash of Western culture, an eclectic mix to soothe the soul.  The peaceful surroundings offer a perfect retreat from the outside world.

Go To Travel Campaign

The Go To Travel Campaign is an initiative of the federal government of Japan to support the tourism industry which has been hard hit by the Covid-19 pandemic.  When you book via the KUMANO TRAVEL Community Reservation System (managed by the The Tanabe City Kumano Tourism) we are receiving the financial support aid on behalf of you and relaying this funding onto the local service providers. 

This Campaign in only for Japanese citizens or foreign residence of Japan.

IMPORTANT: Cancellation fees are applied as to the terms and conditions of booking based on the original price plan before the discount.
