Hotel Hanaya has joined the Kumano Travel community!
Hotel Hanaya is a family run guesthouse in the Nonaka area of Nakahechi village. There is a beautiful river running behind the property, with rice paddies and a sprawling Japanese garden nearby. A cottage with an Irori hearth is the focus of the minshuku, where meals are sometimes taken. In the spring, fireflies dance with the sparks from the fire. This friendly inn is a popular place to stay for pilgrims and walkers on the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage route, as it is located approximately half-way between Takijiri-oji and Kumano Hongu Taisha.
