Minshuku Chikatsuyu is a small guesthouse located in the Chikatsuyu village along the Hiki-gawa River.
The Hisui-no-yu onsen is a hot spring bath next to the inn. The water is famous for its smooth texture.
Minshuku Chikatsuyu is popular with pilgrims and walkers on the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage route.
One of their specialty dishes is ayu (sweet fish) rice.
The view from the dining room opens onto the river and mountains beyond.
This is a popular Minshuku because of its quiet and peaceful location.

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.
