Minpaku Hinokuma has evolved from the owner’s hobbies: building things, travelling, and walking.
He started by building a small wooden hut for a tea house where walkers on the Kumano Kodo section between Tanabe and Takijiri-oji could take a break. Then over a period of 1.5 years he built a small bath house with homemade goemon cauldron bath and a simple cabin for sleeping. The buildings are spread out over a large grassed area.
A simple breakfast is supplied but evening meals must be bought before arriving or eat at a rural Chinese restaurant nearby.
Shuttles are available from nearby train stations: Asso, Kii-Tanabe and Shirahama, plus Inabane-Oji bus stop.
If you arrive early ask the owner to try blow darts, canoe or his other hobby!

Type A Type B Type C Type D Type E
Vegetarianism is not common in the Japanese countryside. Please double-check the Vegetarian Type which the service provider can accommodate to make sure that it meets your needs. Often being able to eat trace amounts of the ubiquitous Katsuo Dashi (fish stock) makes it easier to find options.
NOTE: It is difficult and not culturally sensitive to change meal requests, or make new meal demands, onsite when you arrive at accommodations. Vegetarian types must be confirmed during the reservation process and respected during your visit.
