Minshuku Tateishi is a friendly, relaxed family-run guesthouse in Kawayu Onsen.
There are two buildings which are both two story wooden structures: main building and annex. The main building has Japanese style guestrooms on the second floor. On the first floor is the communal dining room and onsen bath, which can be used privately.
The public onsen next door is also available with complimentary tickets, and of course the river hot spring bath is free to use.
Meals feature fresh local ingredients such as ayu sweetfish.
Minshuku Tateishi makes a great base to explore the Hongu area and surrounding Kumano Kodo pilgrimage routes.

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.
