Kumano Kodo Ohechi Homestay
Around 5 minutes walk south of Mirozu (the trailhead of the Nagai-zaka section of the Kumano Kodo Ohechi pilgrimage route) is Guesthouse Harumi, a two story homestay in a tiny fishing village. It is a well-kept wooden building with small garden. It is managed by the senior member of the family (—grandma!) who also makes the evening bento box.
The family who owns it originally ran a sport fishing business, chartering guests to nearby reefs. But now they are looking to re-use their empty home to host guests from around the world. Note: Grandma's older brother sleeps on the second floor, but is out fishing during the day!

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.
NOTE: It is difficult and not culturally sensitive to change meal requests, or make new meal demands, onsite when you arrive at accommodations. Vegetarian types must be confirmed during the reservation process and respected during your visit.
