First Review by Vegeiko

fantastic vegetarian and atmospheric cafe - Edit

The fire place in the corner, the handmade wooden furniture the friendly owner, the cute farmyard outside.

When you enter you feel as if you have been transported to another world. The vegetarian food was very impressive given how remote this area is. Breakfast and dinner were both amazing, full of a variety of healthy vegies.

We walked the kumano kodo and stayed the night at the guest house. The healthy food was very welcome after a long days hike, fueled by some cheeky snacks.

I'd definerely recommend staying in the guest house as they kindly picked us up by and dropped us off at hongu by car.

Hiking the kumano kodo as a vegetarian is becoming much easier with options like this!!

Pros: lots of vegies and big portions, crazy farmyard animals outside! , very friendly

Most amazing vegan breakfast ever!!! - Edit

Located in beautiful mountain side of UNESCO World heritage Kumano, Japan.
The owner and his family lived in a city but decided to move to Kumano with their 5 kids, such a happy family-style B&B with goats and a dog, he cut the trees and made an amazingly beautiful room and cafe with fireplace!! A real perm-culture pioneer!! His lovely wife is an amazing macrobiotic chef I still can’t forget that fabulous breakfast and organic French-pressed coffee !! Amazing deal of ¥4000 a night (¥7000 with vegan dinner) they will come and pick you up at Hongu bus terminal (熊野本宮大社バスターミナルまで迎えに行きます) Fabukous weekend away from Osaka!! Highly recommended 😆
