Organic Farmhouse Tsukimiso has joined the Kumano Travel community!

Tsukimiso is a peaceful organic farmstay oasis in the mountains of the Kii peninsula run by the young Tokuyama family.  It is a 20~30 minute drive on a windy mountain road from Susami Station (Free pick-up from the Susami station, please request this when booking).  The guestroom is a small, renovated cottage next to the house.  Meals are served in the family’s dining room and the wooden bath is cleverly embedded into an old tool shed.  Meals are lovely made by the soft-spoken owner, who is passionate about food.  She grows and sources her ingredients locally.  Enjoy the evening drinking local beer/sake, or try one of their original cocktails like the Tsukimiso Sunrise (local cherries, ponkan orange juice and tequila).

Sansaro Cafe & Guesthouse has joined the Kumano Travel community!

Sansaro Cafe & Guesthouse is a "mountain-side cool" home stay in Kumano-gawa village (15 minute bus ride from Koguchi).  It was opened in 2014 by Ms. Uzawa, who fell in love with the location in the natural surroundings. She is a dynamic soul with strong interest in yoga, music, food, healing, and the vitality of the Kumano region. Sansaro is a cafe with a house next door. There is one guestroom in the cafe itself, the others are in the house.  It overlooks the Akagi-gawa river and rice fields with mountains framing the horizon on all sides.  The Kanmaru bus stop is nearby.  Music is a mainstay with a DJ stand, piano, and other instruments.  An onsen ticket is given to guests on check-in to use the nearby Satsuki hot spring bath for free.
