Where to stay in Nachikatsura-cho

You can find a couple of guesthouses and minshukus (private homes with rental rooms) close to the temple, located inland from the center of Nachikatsuura-cho. However, by far the greatest collection of places to stay in Nachikatsuura-cho lies down by the coast. You can find some good budget hotels near the main train stations that run past the water, as well as some side-street guesthouses. Look for traditional ryokans offering onsite spa facilities close to the hot springs.
