Mitaki Sanso



Mitaki Sanso has the privilege of being the only accommodation on Nachisan, located just below the Kumano Nachi Taisha and Seiganto-ji Temple.

"Mitaki 美滝" means "beautiful waterfall", and "Sanso 山荘" can be translated as "mountain villa, mountain retreat, or mountain cottage", is an appropriate name for this lodging in the mountains with beautiful views of the Nachi waterfall, at 133 meters, the tallest in Japan and worshipped as a deity. 

Meals feature local produce in dishes, highlighting the seafood from the nearby Pacific coast. It is a convenient base for walkers on the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage route who are finishing the Ogumotori-goe trail.


545-1 Nachisan, Nachi-Katsuura cho, Higashimuro-gun, Wakayama Prefecture, 649-5301
