welcome to ikkyu

Ikkyu is an inn located in the mountain back of Kumano,
where the old houses were renovated.
At the "reclaimed land · Kumano" where the gods live,
we propose a new lifestyle, It is a little unusual inn.




Hello. It is the guest house ikkyu owner Yusuke. This inn is a guest house limited to one pair per day, renovated old buildings for 80 years. We feel charm in the nature of Kumano, and we have immigrated in 2015.
There are neither convenience stores nor supermarkets nearby, only mountains and rivers can see around. It is an inn that you can enjoy the nature of Kumano slowly. It is convenient for sightseeing because it is close to the "Koguchi", the relay point of Kumano Kodo "Ookumotori-goe / Kogumotori-goe" and Kumano Hongu Taisha shrine. Also, I can pick up you if you are within 1 hour by car.



ikkyu's concept 

I put one thought in this guesthouse. Let's make a living for one Earth. Our lives in modern times are abundant and convenient, but on the other hand, they create a lot of environmental destruction and a gap between rich and poor. Especially concerning the global environment, it is said that 2.5 globe is necessary as it is. In other words, we are living by exploiting richness from future generations. Who will pay for our 'wealth'? In order to leave a current global environment in the future, we must live on "one earth". I want to pursue this way and send out that way. And I want advice from the  guests who come to stay from all over the world. Why do not you consider staying at this place and thinking about the future as to what kind of life should Japan shift in the future?




Efforts of ikkyu's "Living for one Earth".

Of course, it is not perfect to introduce here, and it is not enough to make the impact on the global environment zero. However, I think that I would be able to become some kind of hint and challenge, and I'm introducing the following initiatives. When you come to stay at ikkyu, I think that you actually see and use it and feel something.
