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.
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.

it was a wonderful place for me! For those who like or be familiar with asian countryside things, yusuke’s guesthouse is perfect place to stay. If you want to stay at modernized house, i would recommend to look for other places. The guesthouse is located at small beautiful town. it may be hard to find if you don’t take a pick-up service. Room was cosy and clean. Though the batheroom wasn’t available yet, i could use a bathtub in yusuke’s house, which is about 30 seconds away from the guesthouse. Yusuke and his wife also helped me about kumano-kodo trip and yusuke took me to koguchi(where the kumano-kodo route starts) by car. i will choose this guesthouse again if i go to kumano again 🙂
Yusuke is a great guy. He is incredibly friendly and helpful. He thought of everything and caters to any wish. We walked the Kumano Kodo trails. He dropped us off at the start and picked us up after a long walk to drive us straight to an onsen to complete the wonderful experience! My best airbnb ever! And beautiful traditional ryokan house
熊野古道を訪ねて2名で滞在しましたが、暖かみがありつつキレイな空間でくつろげました。予約後、いろいろ柔軟に対応くださりありがたかったです。 薪ストーブを囲みながらお話したことも楽しく、夕飯も朝食もリーズナブルで美味しかったです。 環境への配慮を取り入れながらも快適に過ごせる設備でした。 公共交通機関でのアクセスは便利そうではなかったですが、新宮や熊野大社などはお迎えもしてくださるということで問題ないと思います。 熊野に行く方はぜひ。
We had a lot of fun and games enjoyed talking with Thanks. This place is a very well renovated ood japanese house and we slept very well. Thanks was very helpful and came pick us up at Hongu Tanisha and in the next morning dropped us up at Koguchi to start off ours path on the Kimono koddeo
We loved spending a rainy day in Yusukes house. So much space, beautiful scenery, lovely host. Yusuke picked us up in Hongu Taishu and took us to the Onsens since the showerroom was under construction ( will be finished end of June 2017). Yusuke and his wife are a lot into organic and healthy food, environment, alternativ energy. It was a good break from hostels and hotels, quite a treat. Would come back anytime to spent more than two nights!!
予約の段階から、丁寧できめ細やかに 対応してくださったので、到着までの不安など まったくなくたどりつけました。 気さくで紳士的な若きオーナー 赤ちゃんをおぶって気丈に おもてなししてくださる朗らかな奥様 そして、人なつこくて超可愛いムスコ君 アットホームなお宿で アットホームなファミリーに迎えていただき 終始、ぽっかぽか温かく心地いい時間でした。 オーナーお手製のイエローカレーや 鹿肉のハンバーグなど、 お料理も抜群に美味しくて･･･ お宿常設のバーにて オーナー家族との会話も弾み お酒もすすみます。^^ ガイドブックにはない貴重な情報や 現地の方とのご縁も結んでいただき 未来への展望につながりました。 「足るを知る者は富む」 自分にとって必要なモノを知る 便利を追求すれば、不自由がついてくる シンプルに生きやすく暮らせるヒントが いっぱい詰まってるとお宿だと思います。 「自然に寄り添いながら 自由に暮らしていきたい･･･」 そんな方にはホントにオススメです! また必ず来たい! また必ず来ますので、よろしくお願いします。
I had the honour to be the first to stay at Yusuke’s guesthouse. It is an amazing place. Perfect for people hiking the Kumano Kodo trail. Yusuke picked me up at Kumano Hongu Taisha and brought me back there the day after. He also drove me to a closeby onsen. The guesthouse has a small bar where Yusuke offers drinks and food. I’ve also met Yusuke’s family. They all made me feel very welcome. Staying at this place made my trip to Kumano Kodo very special. I can definitely recommend Yusuke’s guesthous and hope that I’ll manage to come back here one day!
Yusuke and his family are amazing! We had a lot of fun chatting with them over dinner and drinks and their two sons are so cute. The house is beautiful. Yusuke tends to the fireplace and bar. I recommend trying his home made rum/umeshu mix. His place is brand new and the shower is still under construction but don’t let that dissuade you. The local Onsens in nearby Hongu are a great way to relax while you bathe, and Yusuke will happily drive you there and back. I can honestly say that this was one of my all time favorite AirBnB experiences. PS. Just make sure the heater has enough oil to keep you nice and warm all night.
It is a very interesting experience, Yusuke is very friendly and helpful, he gave us great great suggestions for the dinner restaurant and beautiful onsen, we all love it! Though his bath is still under construction, and we have to go to the onsen, his house is a beautiful gem in the area, lovely stay.
