Hongu Retreat

Villa KUMANO is a private villa in the heart of Hongu Village conveniently located close to Kumano Hongu Taisha Grand Shrine and Oyunohara.

This charming house built in the 1970s is a cozy 2-story residence featuring 2 bedrooms, reception room, dining and kitchen area, and bath.

From the terrace, you can see the beautiful Kii Mountain Range and the world’s largest torii gate. Enjoy a glass of wine (courtesy of the owners) with the breathtaking view! 

Villa KUMANO offers meals in collaboration with local businesses. For dinner, partake of a course menu with seasonal ingredients at Miya Sushi including a sushi-making experience. And for breakfast, specialty coffee from Sabo Sei and additive-free homemade bread from Marble provided in a box decorated with traditional Japanese “Mizuhiki” ribbon. 

Only those 13 years or older are able to stay at Villa KUMANO.  Sorry, 12 and younger are NOT able to stay.
