Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My partner and I spent 2 nights at Eco-Guesthouse Kunelasob. They cooked the most delicious vegan meals I have ever had! Their hospitality was second to none, they drove us to the onsen each day before dinner, provided breakfast and dinner, gave us some great recommendations and answered any questions we had. I highly recommend staying! I would go back in a heartbeat.

The food here was amazing. Every dinner and breakfast was a meticulously prepared multi-course degustation. It really was the highlight of staying here. We also enjoyed touring the local area which has some breathtaking scenery. Everyone made us feel very welcome and spoiled. We hope to come back again!

Nori and his wife run a sweet and super basic guesthouse. Nori’s wife is the chef and it is her food that makes this place worth the not-easy-to-get-to trip. The view from the front porch is a pretty special wake up call too. Notes: very basic accommodations, and bath access is a 10 min drive away - nothing on site - Nori happy to take you if you don’t have a car - which you should - exploring the remote area requires it.

We stayed 3 nights at this place hidden in the deep valley. Though not far from the train station, there is a winding small road going down to the valley. View from the house is impressive. We drove ourselves, so not much problem of moving around. If not, taking bus can be a bit complicated as service is not frequent. Otherwise, it is just a short drive to the Iya valley. Though the place has no shower, they offer onsen at a hotel not far. Highlight of this place are the vegetarian meals. The hostess has great passion in cooking and every meal is simply divine. A very nice experience to be off traditional hotel and ryokan.

We stayed for only two nights, we wish they had been more. This remote gem is run by Nori and his wife, who cooks the most amazing food we've had on our whole trip. Meals are served in the common area, which makes for interesting exchanges with other guests. Nori is very helpful with advice on practical things, and was easy going in communication. The onsen at the nearby hotel was relaxing and offers a neat view of the Yoshino river. Keep in mind that public transportation in this area is limited and not very cheap, requiring extra planning for your day trips.

The vegetarian /vegan dinner and breakfast at this remote guesthouse were delicious, the traditional kitchen is a treat to see and the conversations at the common table were very inspiring, helpful manager/owners and staff. We stayed in a pleasant, airy traditional room with a peaceful atmosphere. Access by own car is manageable if a bit tricky. The only drawback is that inspite of the remote location you can still hear the lorries on the main road down in the valley.

We died and went to vegan heaven at this beautiful guesthouse. It was our favourite experience during our two week tour of Japan. Nori and his wife were very hospitable and lovely people. Nori was easy to communicate with and quick with responding to emails. Speaks good English too. He’s also led an interesting life and continues to do so which makes for great conversation. The scenery is spectacular. We’d just come from the chaos that is Tokyo so coming to Kunelasob was so relaxing. We stayed for two nights so spent our full day here down by one of the local lakes and bridge. Each night, Nori took us to a local hotel for an onsen and bathing, as others have said there’s no shower facilities at the guesthouse. The onsen was lovely and the no shower was no issue, the onsen provided perfect space to bathe and all products too. The accommodation was very traditional and comfortable. We did travel far from Tokyo to come to Kunelasob, yet Japan’s public transport system made the journey bearable. The food was phenomenal. So creative, intricate and special. The best we’ve had in Japan. So much thought and love goes into these meals, you can tell they really enjoy doing what they do. My husband and I can’t recommend this place enough!! It’s a must during Japan travels. We’ll definitely go again if back in Japan and will highly encourage everyone else to go too.

If you are into great food, exploring the outdoors and enjoying traditional japanese housing this place is for you. My sister and I had a wonderful 2 nights staying in Nori and Kaori’s Ryokan on the edge of the river. So peaceful and comfortable. Kaori is an amazing cook, so creative, breakfast and diner each day was so delightful and delicious. The best food we had eaten! Nori picked us up and dropped us off to the oboke station and took us every evening to a lovely onsen overlooking the river! It was an amazing experience!

We spent two nights in a beautiful and familial ryokan. We had an excellent Japanese experience! Food was absolutely delightful and it was really cool to eat together and share stories with other people. Nori is a very friendly host. We really enjoyed our time there. Oh, and the view is gorgeous! Thank you ! One of the highlights of our trip to Japan. Maxime & Roxanne

We were greeted at Oboke station by a smiling Nori San and this set the tone for our visit. Nori's wife and her assistant made unbelievably imaginative, delicious vegan food. Dinner and breakfast meals were both very filling and interesting. Our tatami room was large with a view over the lush valley. Not having a shower or bath available on the property was not a problem. Nori took us to a nearby onsen late every afternoon which was a special experience. We were given all the help we needed to enable us to catch local buses. A car was definitely not needed. I recommend Kunelasob to all who are seeking a relaxing holiday with amazing food.
