On the way of Kumano Kodo,Nakahechi Nov 05, 2016
The Third Place Inn located on the Kumano Kodo,Nakahehi in Tanabeshi,Wakayama prifuture. Kumano Kodo is a famouse pilgrim. We took Nakahechi route 38km needed stay over night on 0the way,around Nakano. So we booked [3rd Place] for our rest.

Actuarlly it was hard to make a booking at best season for trekking. The 3rd Place just got a cancel from other guest when we offered the date. We are so lucky,any other places are full already. And the 3rd place accept only one group for a night. That's very special for the guest. The owner named Tessan staying next house,so you don't worry to be just guest in deep mountain.

The owner Tessan is very kind and he don't really want to earn money,it look like he do just because he loves to do that. He was a pro tenniss player. And speaking English well.

He picked up us at Chikatsuyu,then brought us to the supermarket if we need something for drinks. Then after we arrived the place,he explain about the house and how t use bath...also asked us if we want to go to the Onsen. YES!! Then he brought us for the Onsen,during we take onsen he prepare our dinner box. He picked us up again at Onsen. Thoes pick up are all free.

The place is old Japanese style house. Nice entrance and good woody house. There are 4rooms and 1kitchin and 1bathroom. He allowed us to have coffee and tea and some wiskey on the table. You can cook there if you want.

The Futon is confortable. It was cold out side but the futon is so warm enough with a matt under the futon.

Next day,I was surprised as there were sea cloud at front of our inn. That's amazing. I support if it was sunny night we could see beautiful stars in the sky.

I walk a little bit high place then got so beautiful landscape. We're so happy staying here.

Tessan have garden at there then he said we can do BBQ in summer. Also he make rice paddy,bucks paddy,vegitable,fishing at river...etc So you can have experiences of aglicurture at there.

I definitelly want to back here again.

Tessan drop out us at Chikatsuyu which he picked up us yesterday. We took breakfast here then start walking our way to Kumano Hongu.

Staying 4,500yen

Incuding dinner/breakfast/lunch box 7,500yen

That's really good deal and we had great time at 3rd place. I do high recommend you to stay there when we're walk in Kumano Kodo.
