Welcome to Albergue Kodo Guesthouse!

This guesthouse is ideal for people looking to experience the pleasure of walking on the ancient Kumano Kodo pilgrimage. Here you can relax in a Japanese style house and experience the local way of life.
Located a short bus ride or leisurely 7km hike away from Nachi Taisha (那智大社), we are in a great place to explore the beautiful area. From Nachi Taisha, it is a 14km hike to Koguchi (小口).

We offer free High-speed Wi-Fi for all guests during your stay.

The space
Newly opened in May 2017!

The house is situated in a very quiet residential area. A stream flows nearby, facing a deep mountain, and in the evening we can see the Milky Way in the sky and you have the chance to see wild animals such as deer appear in the garden.
In the right season, you can see fireflies in the evening!

During your stay in the quiet nature, you can sit on a rocking chair to read, or relax on the edge of a Japanese-style room facing our large garden. We wish for you to have a comfortable stay!

We have three bedrooms:
On the first floor we have two rooms, separated by a sliding door/fusuma (Triple room and stuff room). The maximum capacity of each room is 3 people, so they are bigger than the second floor. They also offer a small veranda where you have a great view on the garden.
On the second floor (2F twin room), we have another rooms which is suitable for 2 people or single offering a more private space. This one is a little bit smaller than the others and has no veranda.
Each room has wide open windows, and you can feel the transition of the four seasons in Japan with warm sunlight.
The floor of all rooms are tatami, and sleeping on a soft futon helps to heal the tiredness of your trip.

We offer a superb selection of convenient ready made food, as well as frozen food, available for you to purchase for a small fee. We can also organize a special sashimi platter from a local fishmonger, to make your experience here even more authentic. As well as this, we also stock refreshing beverages for a reasonable price.
Please note that due to our location, the nearest conbini is 20minutes walk away. If you would prefer to eat fresh food, please buy from a supermarket before you arrive – we have a well equipped kitchen for you to work with.

In order to overcome the Kumano Kodo path around Katsuura (勝浦), it is necessary to schedule roughly two to three days depending on the person.
If you would like to have your big baggage, cars, motorcycles, bicycles etc during that period, it is also possible to leave your valuable items here.

Where you’ll be

Nachikatsuura-chō, Wakayama-ken, Japan

Albergue Kodo guesthouse is located in the middle of the Kumano Kodo Road. It is just a 3 minute walk to the Road of Mandara(曼陀羅の道), the first ancient mountain road. In addition, it is a 10 minute bus journey from the Nachi Shrine (那智大社), and just 3km from Nachi beach. The proximity of this guesthouse to Nachisan makes this an ideal place to stay for guests who wish to walk the Ogumotorigoe section of the old pilgrimage route, Kumano Kodo. There are many hot springs in the nearby Katsuura area. The most popular, Urashima Onsen, is just a short journey from the guesthouse. The famous fresh Tuna market is also located right near Kii-Katsuura Station and is a popular destination among our guests.
Also, there is a beautiful sandy beach "Blue beach Nachi" in front of Nachi Station. It is 5 minutes by bus from the guesthouse and 25 minutes on foot. Of course you can swim in the summer and it is very pleasant even if you take a walk on the sandy beach in the winter season.

If you are planning to visit Hongu Taisha before or after your visit, it is roughly 1 hour by car or 2 hours to by bus and train.
Please note that due to our location, the nearest convenience store is a 20minute walk away. Alternatively, the supermarket in Katsuura Town is a 30 minute walk away.

Thank you for visiting my guest house page from a number of listings. The first picture is a pict of the whole staff of my guest house.  It has been 17 years since I moved to Wakayama from Tokyo. I am the father of three healthy boys. I would be pleased if you could touch on Japanese culture and Japanese people more deeply. I have a foreign sister-in-law. That's way I am very interested in foreign cultures and foreign lives. I am very much looking forward to having meaningful time to communicate with guests.  My dream is to make friends around the world.
