Guest House Asyl is a rental house in the isolated Fushiogami settlement along the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage route in the Hongu area. It is located just north, over a ridge from the scenic lookout Fushiogami-oji and managed by a young family who lives nearby, with a cozy soba restaurant in their house. For those walking the Kumano Kodo from Chikatsuyu or Nonaka area (Tsugizakura-oji) this is an excellent place to stay.
Mr. Nakane has a passion for the spiritual culture, cooking, and rural lifestyle of Kumano, being a Yamabushi mountain ascetic (a practitioner of the Shugendo faith).
Recently, his restaurant Yamabushisoba Ogamian was awarded a Green Michelin Star in 2022 for its sustainable and environmentally friendly practices.
The two-story wooden cottage has guestrooms on the second floor, and sitting area, kitchen, bath and toilet on the ground floor. It is a short walk from the family's home and restaurant, where meals are served, often with home-grown ingredients.
Private rental: only one group per day.
Check-in: at soba restaurant.
