Minshuku Tateishi

Kawayu Onsen (Hongu)


Minshuku Tateishi is a friendly, relaxed family-run guesthouse in Kawayu Onsen.

There are two buildings which are both two story wooden structures: main building and annex. The main building has Japanese style guestrooms on the second floor. On the first floor is the communal dining room and onsen bath, which can be used privately.

The public onsen next door is also available with complimentary tickets, and of course the river hot spring bath is free to use.

Meals feature fresh local ingredients such as ayu sweetfish.

Minshuku Tateishi makes a great base to explore the Hongu area and surrounding Kumano Kodo pilgrimage routes.
