 Description

Renovated School House

Shizen-no-Ie is an old junior high school that was beautifully renovated as a lodge.  It is located in the tiny community of Koguchi, half-way between Nachi and Hongu, thus making it an important overnight stop on the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage route. To the south is the Ogumotori-goe trail and to the north is the Kogumotori-goe trail. It is also popular with fisherman, students, and families as a summer vacation spot.  There is a small river and shrine next to the lodge.  This is a great area to enjoy the peacefulness of an isolated mountain village.
