Convenient Village Lodging

Kumano Kodo Lodge "Kumoma" in Koguchi, once an old agricultural cooperative building, is now a village guesthouse and artists' retreat. It is conveniently located between the Ogumotori-goe trailhead and access to the Kogumotori-goe, in front of the Minakata shop, about 200 meters from the Koguchi bus stop. The name "Kumoma" literally translates as "between the clouds," referring to the two Kumotori passes. The owner opened the inn in 2019. He had traveled to the Kumano area for work many times and liked the area, and finally found and renovated the current location in Koguchi. He had worked various trades as part of a work-for-experience program which he now promotes and wanted to create an appealing stay for both artists and Kumano Kodo hikers in Koguchi at the urging of other locals. The interior is spacious and relaxed. Guests can have either a western-style or Japanese-style room, or rent-out the whole guesthouse. A light breakfast comes with the stay. Bento box meals for dinner and the following day's lunch can be ordered in advance upon request. There is also a small kitchenette with a refrigerator, microwave oven, and hot pot. This inn is the closest to the Ogumotori-goe trailhead.
