Property Description

J-Hoppers Kumano Yunomine Guesthouse is situated in Hongu and is a 10 minutes drive away from Kumano Hongu Taisha Grand Shrine.(approx 70min walk on Kumano Kodo Pilgrimage Routes)

For over 1000 years people from all levels of society, including retired emperors and aristocrats, have made the arduous pilgrimage to Kumano. These pilgrims used a network of routes, now called the Kumano Kodo.Walking the ancient Kumano Kodo is a fantastic way to experience the unique cultural landscape of Kumano's spiritual countryside. The Kumano Kodo pilgrimage routes were registered as UNESCO World Heritage as part of the 'Sacred Sites and Pilgrimage Routes in the Kii Mountain Range' property.

Yunomine Onsen Hot spring was discovered about 1,800 years ago, and it is thought to be one of the oldest hot springs in Japan. And it is an integral part of the over 1000 year old Kumano pilgrimage tradition. Pilgrims performed hot water purification rituals in these piping hot mineral waters after their long journey in preparation to worship at Kumano Hongu Taisha.


This guesthouse is adjoining Kumano Kodo Pilgrimage Routes (World Heritage). There are 2 indoor hot springbaths and a open-air bath(open-air bath will be available form Oct. of 2017) in the guesthouse, and a public hot spring called 'Tsuboyu' (World Heritage) just minutes walk away. There is luggage storage space at the property. The guesthouse offers free rice. Rental bicycle is also available.

Please note that the guesthouse collects a bath tax(municipal tax) of 150JPY per person(over 12years old) per night, aside from room charge.


Kansai International Airport is 2 hours and 30 minutes drive away from the property.

Absolutely loved our stay as part of our 4 day trek of the Kumano Kodo Nakahechi route. We stayed here on our 2nd night and loved every part of it: the outdoor onsen, the location, the cozy tatami room, the kitchen and friendly travelers. Hope to return soon :)
