Gorgeous place!


This is an absolute gem of a place! The view from the living room is fantastic, the beds are comfortable, and the food is amazing. Everything is so well thought out, and you can truly see how much love and care Miko has put into the place. We highly recommend staying here without a doubt.

Response from Komorian to Esther


I tried more than 100000000 times to reply the review below only to fail.

And the developer of this function has been ignoring my inquiry…(-“-)

So, I would like to leave my reply to Esther like this…☺

Hi Esther, thank you for the warm review!

After you guys left, it started snowing in Kumano Area. Not that much, but I think you, or at least your husband (whose favorite temperature is minus 2 degree), would have loved this clear and cold air around the house now.

I am SO happy if I could be a part of your memorable journey in Japan and I myself really enjoyed to have you, wish you could stay longer 😢

From now on, this air of winter will remind me of you guys every year, and I will go to see you and your beloved animals in future! See you then❤

Superb beyond words!!


Booked 2 other places with very limited travel and then saw The Komorian and cancelled our other reservations. So so glad we did!!

Miko was the most hospitable, kind, generous and memorable host ever met.

The house was clean, beautiful and authentically Japanese, giving us the gift of experiencing the true heart of Japan.

Due to the nature of Kumano Kodo being remote, Miko’s host house had everything we needed and more.

Amazing meals, beyond words, ease of travel, long private Japanese bath post walks, the double doors with a creek view, privacy and the beautiful heart felt personal touches that is added to this place makes it so so unique.

Thank you Miko, our stay has been memorable and we didn’t want to leave ❤️

Fantastic place to stay while exploring the Kumano Kodo


We stayed with Miko at her wonderful house for three nights while we did the Kumano Kodo. Miko is a delightful host; extremely helpful and her meals were amazing! The house itself is beautiful, private and comfortable. We would love to stay there again next time we visit!

Hi Ben! Thank you for the nice review!

I watched the Zombie TV drama you guys reccommended for me, and it was really great! And I am going to challenge the Kogumotori-Goe and Okumotori-Goe in this coming winter. Yes, winter is coming….☺

Anyways, take care and see you again in future!

A dreamy experience


The Komorian house is the house of our dreams, and Miko-san is the perfect host: she will make you feel at home and pay attention to every detail. All the meals she prepares are plentiful and delicious and she’s an amazing person.

Also the architecture of the house couldn’t be more beautiful. It has been an amazing experience, and we hardly found better accommodation during our stay in Japan. We are very grateful. Hopefully, we can come back in the future!

Response from Komorian −こもり庵−

Wow! Thank you for the nice review! And I already miss you two ;(

But I believe you are enjoying the next town and being loved by people there again.

You kept me laugh hard for whole 4 days (while you stayed at Komorian)!

I really wanted to keep watching the popular sitcom “Guille and Elena&#8221;, forever hahahahaha!

BTW, your? badgers said hello to you!

Keep in touch♡
