Minshuku 3rd Place Kumano Kodo


The dynamic Mr.Tetsuyama welcomes you to your "3rd place" on the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage route. Located between the village of Chikatsuyu and Tsugizakura-oji (Nonaka area), it is a convenient place to stop for walkers, and those looking to experience the Japanese countryside (without necessarily walking!).

This cozy lodge is a great place to spend the night and experience the atmosphere, culture and hospitality of the sacred Kumano mountains.

This lodge is for private rental, only one booking per day.
