Pilgrims' Home

MUI is an older home lovely reformed into a cozy guesthouse steps away from the Kumano Kodo Nakahechi route about 15 minutes walk east of Tsugizakura-oji.  The owners moved to the area because of their love of the mountains and desire to live a rural lifestyle.  They were inspired to create a place of communication and exchange for pilgrims after their walk on the Way of St. James in Spain.  The first thing that guests will notice is the location: a small set of homes, interspersed with tiny, terraced fields surrounded by towering cedars and cypress trees.  The second is their pet goat!  There are two Japanese style guestrooms on the second floor with communal sitting area, bath and toilet on the first floor.  A small yard in front of the house offers a quiet place to sit and relax.  Home-made meals are served in the dining area, a renovated building next to the house.

◆ NOTE ◆
From January 2022, guests who would like an early check-in time (13: 00-15: 00), will be charged 1,000 yen per room to be paid at check-in. Thanks for your understanding. If you wish to do so, please indicate so in the remarks column on the booking form.
