Kameya Ryokan is one of the oldest accommodations in Kawayu Onsen. The main building was built over 150 years ago and is registered as a National Cultural Asset. The rooms are older but all have views on to the crystal clear Oto River, which flows through the village. Kameya Ryokan is run by the Kobuchi family and are well known for their excellent meals. One of Kameya’s specialties is "Kumano Yakusen Ryori" or "Kumano Medicinal Cuisine", made with fresh, local ingredients, to keep the body, mind and spirit healthy.
