      The Japanese Style room is so nice! There was only me and a female guest from Japan on that night. The owner, Robert, gave me a lot advice about Kumano Kudo hiking. He's very kind and patient! BTW, Tanabe is a very good start of Kumano Kudo, and Takao is a good place to have a rest for a challenging hiking trip!

      The place is very convenient as it is very close to Kiitanabe station and it helps because I had to catch the first trips. I wasn’t able to interact much because I was away during the day and only stayed there for the night but the owner, Robert, was very friendly and accommodating! I was able to have small talks with him during my stay there. The place was very clean and complete with all things that you’d need for a night’s stay. Highly recommended!
