Rustic Renovated Homestay

@koguchi is like a home-away-from-home in this remote mountain settlement.  It is located just outside of the Koguchi community between Hongu and Nachi. The owner has renovated her grandmother's house, preserving its rural village charm while adding warm modern elements.  In memory of her grandma, guests will be treated to a variety of her grandmother's traditional Japanese-style recipes such as wild boar and hot pot cooking.  The house is perfect for a private group stay, from as few as one to seven people as a stop on the Kumano Kodo Nakahechi pilgrimage route, or as a rural mountain visit. Relax in wicker chairs or stroll around the verdant green and breathe deeply from your new "second home."

The owner will pick up guests from the Kowaze Ferry Ruins or Koguchi -- just send her an email, and see them off to either the Kogumotori or Ogumotori trailheads nearby in the morning.
