Restaurant Guesthouse

Kumano Kodo-no-Yado Reimei Lodging House is located in the small village of Ukegawa at the confluence of the Oto river and Kumano-gawa, 3 kilometers south of the Hongu village townsite.

The large yellow sign is easy to spot! One the first floor is a Chinese restaurant and on the second floor are the three guestrooms.  It is a simple, basic, budget facility run by the cordial Mr. Nojiri.  The rooms are Japanese style, with shared bath and toilet facilities.  Famous dishes at the restaurant are gyoza dumplings using local Kumano beef, and Wakayama Ramen noodles.

The trailhead to the Kumano Kodo Kogumotori-goe section is nearby.  The Ukegawa bus stop is across the street so public busses are convenient to use.

NOTE: Only one booking (capacity MAX 5) will be accepted each day. 
Single occupancy is not available during peak season.

◆ IMPORTANT NOTICE ◆We will be closed until further notice.
