Katsuura Gyoen

By Weekender Editor

How about a quick getaway to a UNESCO World Heritage site? Katsuura Gyoen is a luxury ryokan in the fishing port town of Katsuura (which lays claim to the highest volume of tuna fish hauls in Japan). Overlooking Nachi Bay, the hotel’s “Ten” suites are spacious and feature open-air baths. Some of the rooms even offer views of Nachi-no-Otaki, Japan’s tallest waterfall. Best of all, the area is home to the ancient, UNESCO-registered Kumano Kodo pilgrimage trail. Stretching over the mountainous Kii Peninsula (which is listed on Lonely Planet’s “Best in Travel 2018” list), the route lets you take in the extraordinary landscape and visit the three Grand Shrines of Kumano while feeling the spirituality and history that are now an integral part of the Kumano countryside.

Address: 216-19 Katsuura, Nachikatsuura-cho, Higashimuro-gun, Wakayama
