Shizen-no-Ie is an old junior high school that was beautifully renovated as a lodge. It is located in the tiny community of Koguchi, halfway between Nachi and Hongu, thus making it an important overnight stop on the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage route. To the south is the Ogumotori-goe trail and to the north is the Kogumotori-goe trail.
It is also popular with fishermen, students, and families as a summer vacation spot. There is a small river and shrine next to the lodge. This is a great area to enjoy the peacefulness of an isolated mountain village.
