Kohechi Onsen Lodging in Omata
Hotel Nosegawa is located in a tiny settlement of houses next to Kawarabi-gawa River deep in the heart of the Kii mountains. It is famous for its hot spring baths and isolated location, with all rooms facing onto the river.
Meals are made from local ingredients in the mountains, such as wild meats, and fish from the nearby river.
This mountain-side accommodation can be visited with a convenient shuttle service to/from Koyasan. It is also popular with hikers on the Kumano Kodo, Kohechi section, with Obakotoge-pass to the south and Koyasan to the north.
From the Oomata trailhead, Hotel Nosegawa is a 40 minute walk and a short drive by car. You can call the hotel from the pay phone at the trailhead and they can pick you up with their shuttle bus.

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.
