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.

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.
