Takijiri Guesthouse

Kodo-no-Mori is a lodging next to Takijiri-oji, the spiritual entrance to the sacred Kumano mountains and popular trailhead for multi-day treks on the Kumano Kodo. 

The guestrooms are simple Japanese style, where futons are laid onto the floor for sleeping.  The kitchen, bath and washing area are communal. There is an atmosphere of home-sharing as the owner (and cat) lives onsite. 

There is a shop built into the house which is run by the same owner.  The shop sells souvenirs including a selection of local sake and beer. 

Homemade meals are served in the shop.

This accommodation also offers luggage shuttle services.
Please apply when walking Kumano Kodo.

※ Note for cat allergies: There is a cat in residence in the building.
