Gyoja Minshuku Taiyo-no-Yu is an older 6 story wooden building built on the side of a steep slope overlooking the emerald waters of the a dam-lake in Totsukawa Onsen.   It is located between the trailhead of the Kumano Kodo Kohechi route and the Totsukawa Onsen village.  The building is mixed use, with a day service facility for the elderly on the first floor and accommodation on the upper floors.  The entrance to the accommodation is off of the main road on the 5th floor.   The rooms are Japanese style.  The non-circulating onsen baths are both indoors and outdoors.  The outdoor bath on the upper floor has an enjoyable view.  Gyoja Minshuku Taiyo-no-Yu collaborates with local hunters to share the authetic mountain culture gastronomy, with deer and wild boar featured prominently on the menu.
