Charming Rental House

Hibiki is a rental house in a small, quiet community in the Nakahechi area of Tanabe City associated with Café Bonte.  Café Bonte is where check-in/check-out are done and serves as the dining room for the Hikibi lodging.   Delicious meals including vegetarian options are available. 

The lovely house itself is large and very well maintained with comfortable sitting area, featuring both Japanese style and Western bedrooms.  Beautiful antiques and art decorate the home. 

The nearest bus stop is Kii-Okawa which is between Takijiri-oji and Chikatsuyu-oji.  Hibiki is not located along the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage route, but shuttles from/to different trailheads in the area are possible on request. It is ~15 minute drive from Takahara in the valley below.

※Sorry, we cannot accept single travelers.

NOTE: Hibiki Rental House
is currently not accepting new reservation requests because of family circumstances.
