Gesthouse Sora Chikatsuyu

A pilgrimage to Kumano is a journey into Japanese spiritual origin, Nature worship for sustainable life, Buddhism prayers for peace.

In the world under the influence of covid-19 and invasion of Ukraine, the value of the countryside like Kumano is re-evaluated. Kumano has beautiful mountains, rivers, waterfalls, rocks, and forests which are worshipped as “Kami” (Dieties in Japan).

Guesthouse Sora Chikatsuyu

Chikatsuyu is the first or second night’s lodging from the start point of the Kumanokodo Nakahechi route.
We were attracted by the beauty of the nature and the warmth of the people in Kumano, and moved to Chikatsuyu 5 years ago.
We serve our guests Japanese meals made from fresh local ingredients . We talk about the culture and history of Kumano and the joy of Kumanokodo pilgrimage.
We hope our guests to enjoy talking with us and other guests, rest well in our quiet home and then start the long walk to Kumano Hong Grand Shrine the next morning.
