Happiness Chikatsuyu is a cottage owned by the lovely Ms. Muya. It is located in a small grove of trees just north of the Kumano Kodo in Chikatsuyu village next to the Hiki-gawa River. The cozy cottage has a Japanese-style room, small loft, dining room, and kitchen. The dining room features a giant wooden table. The windows look onto the surrounding garden planted with a variety of flowering trees. Guests often enjoy sitting on the deck or in the private gazebo taking in the peaceful location.
The two annex buildings (Ken-chan, Masaki) are named after Ms. Muya's grandchildren. They were built in 2019 in a corner of the property near the river surrounded by Japanese maple trees. These two annex buildings are identical and each have two Japanese-style rooms, two toilets and two sinks. The guestrooms are divided by sliding fusuma doors. As with the main Happiness Chikatsuyu cabin, it is a private rental, there is only one booking per day.
There are two bicycles for each of the three buildings that are free to use, convenient for a cruise around town, or to visit the nearby grocery store to buy food.
