Mountain-view Homestay

Keyaki is a house perched on the upper end of the ridge top settlement of Takahara along the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage route. 

It is a long-narrow building with a hallway down the middle: guest rooms and café (dining room) on one side (with panoramic mountain views!) and the family’s rooms on the other. 
There is a small yard in front of the house for relaxing outside to enjoy the view. 
The two guestrooms each have ensuite bath and toilet.  Futons are laid out on an elevated tatami platform. 
Homemade meals are served in the café. 

Please note that the family (with young children) also lives in this house.  
This is the same young couple who manages the nearby Suzushiro rental cottage.
