Minshuku Tsugizakura is named after the nearby Tsugizakura-oji, an ancient shrine with centuries old trees along the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage route. The Nonaka-no-Shimizu spring, one of Japan’s 100 famous waters, is just around the corner.
Minshuku Tsugizakura is a simple home that was turned into a guesthouse at the beginning of 2011 by the Yuba family. Mr. Yuba is a professional chef and worked all over Japan before returning to his hometown in the mountains to open this minshuku - which is why the traditional Japanese meals here are so delicious!

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.
