River Fishermen's Guesthouse

Minshuku Nakano is a family run guesthouse located in the southern part of Chikatsuyu village.  Originally it was frequented by fishermen looking to catch the delicious Ayu sweetfish that thrive in the nearby Hiki-gawa river (the owner is an avid fisherman himself), but they have opened their home and hearts to walkers and pilgrims on the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage route.  It is located 10 minutes on foot from the Chikatsuyu-oji. 

Meals are prepared by a nearby cafe called Waraji-jaya.  The evening meal is delivered to the minshuku in a bento box style.  Breakfast is served at the cafe around a 5 minute walk.  The lunch box is a set of local rice balls which is picked up at the cafe.
