Hongu Homestay-like Guest House

Guest House Yui is a house in the Hongu village a few minutes walk from the Kumano Hongu Taisha and Kumano Hongu Heritage center in a quiet neighborhood on the hillside overlooking Oyunohara, the original shrine ground of Kumano Hongu Taisha.  The owners decided to start hosting guests here after they moved into their parents house next door and building was not being used.  It is a larger two story house with a Japanese style guestroom room on the first floor.  On the second floor is a western style room with twin beds and a guestroom with raised sleeping platform to lay out futons.  The comfortable living room, dining room, bath and toilet are all shared amongst guests.  There are no meals served, but instant foods and drinks are available onsite.  This is a convenient, relaxed accommodation in the Hongu area for those looking for a homestay-like experience.

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.
