Charming Business Hotel
Hotel Charmant is a small hotel very close to the JR Kii-Katsuura Station. It has well maintained rooms and is a convenient base for visiting the area and for those beginning/ending a multi-day walk on the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage route to/from Hongu. There are no evening meals so guests can explore the small restaurants which are famous for their fresh seafood close by. The friendly owners do not speak any English, but are very hospitable to international visitors.
※ As the dining room is small, breakfast may be served as take-out if the seating is full.

- 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.
