Its best asset is its location. Just across the road from the Kii-Katsuura station. That makes it a great jump off point to visit the three world heritage Kumano Shrines. The room are nice, clean and they have a private onsen. A great way to soak our legs after hiking up and down mountains and shrines. The staff are friendly...

The staff were very good offered...

This is a traditional Japanese inn. Nice balcony type view with sink in room. Bathrooms are shared. An onsen is on site but wasnt the type of onsen I had in mind. The tub was stained maybe from iron deposits. Other than that everything was great! They provided tea and coffee. We had the traditional Japanese meal. We ate Everything...
