Simple Rental House

The basic rental house, “guest house shitanoie,” is located in the rustic landscape of Fushiogami in the Hongu area with minimal services for independent guests. The owner is a former teacher from Osaka who fell in love with Kumano while visiting for a week in 2012. It inspired him to move to Hongu with his family and open an environmentally friendly inn that made guests feel like they were visiting the home of a beloved relative! The recently renovated woody interior exudes warmth and harmony. And there is a view of the Kumanogawa River from the second floor. This guest house suits both city folk hoping to get away and those nostalgic for the countryside. Guest house shitanoie is located just 10 minutes by bus from Kumano Hongu Taisha--easy access to sites in the Hongu hot spring area (Hongu Yunomine Onsen , Kawayu Onsen , Wataze / Watarase Onsen).

Great for a relaxing staff for trekkers on the Kohechi (right on the trail!) and Nakahechi.
● This guest house uses eco-friendly composting toilets.
● Self-check-in.  Check-in details will be provided by the owner through MyChat of the KUMANO TRAVEL account after reservation and payment are completed.
