Just 10 minutes walk from station in quiet area. Has 2 rooms and only paper screen in between so with neighbors you are not alone! Tatami a bit hard, but morning cake and terrific beach next door make up for it. Owner super friendly. Do swim in the sea!!

We were exhausted from the trip to Tokyo and it was a great welcome from the owner, Mayuri. 10 mins out from Kii Tanabe station, the place delivers value , cheap and comfortable, i’ve slept in way worse Futons in much more expensive Ryokans. She gave us directions for an unexpensive Izakaya that had great sashimi and adked us if we wanted Bentos for our first Kumano day which we can order from a place close to the station. In the morning she prepared delicious cakes for us to start the morning in the right way

It was our 1st time staying in a traditional Japanese style room and we absolutely loved it. The place is clean and at around 10 mins walk to the station. The owner was very attentive and gave us superb recommendations for food and nearby Izakayas. Our stay (which was pretty cheap) came with morning breakfast for 2 - delicious chiffon cakes and coffee. We loved everything about it except that the 2 rooms are separated from each other by slide doors and you can literally hear everything. Would not recommend it to light sleepers - especially before the hike ne to day!

In short: fun experience sleeping in a traditional japanese futon room but not recommended if you are looking for a good night sleep before kumano-kodo trekking. This is a 70 year old traditional japanese house where your room is an opened space with a low table where you unfold thin futons and put the table aside at night. Must say that the experience is fun and the owner is very sweet and attentive. It is also pretty cheap (7600 yen for 2 people per night) There are 2 guests rooms in this house which are basically separated by a sliding thin wood door and the outlet doors (to the sides and in the pics attached) are literally made out of paper so you can imagine how noisy it is. It feels that you are sleeping together with your neighbouring room mates. However, the worst part is the sunlight entering the room from 5:30 and the fact that even rain or morning bells are loud like hell due to the paper / wood construction of the walls. The cake for breakfast is fantastic and the coffe just an american (=diluted) japanese style.
