Happiness Chikatsuyu is a cottage owned by the lovely Ms. Muya. It is located in a small grove of trees just north of the Kumano Kodo in Chikatsuyu village next to the Hiki-gawa River. The cozy cottage has a Japanese-style room, small loft, dining room, and kitchen. The dining room features a giant wooden table. The windows look onto the surrounding garden planted with a variety of flowering trees. Guests often enjoy sitting on the deck or in the private gazebo taking in the peaceful location.
The two annex buildings (Ken-chan, Masaki) are named after Ms. Muya's grandchildren. They were built in 2019 in a corner of the property near the river surrounded by Japanese maple trees. These two annex buildings are identical and each have two Japanese-style rooms, two toilets and two sinks. The guestrooms are divided by sliding fusuma doors. As with the main Happiness Chikatsuyu cabin, it is a private rental, there is only one booking per day.
There are two bicycles for each of the three buildings that are free to use, convenient for a cruise around town, or to visit the nearby grocery store to buy food.
Ms. Muya wishes to share her little piece of paradise with you. Welcome and fill yourself with "Happiness Chikatsuyu."

- Vegetarian Meals
: Included : Not Included
Type A Type B Type C Type D Type E
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.
