The most beautiful hut on the pilgrimage route. No food (buy in the village before you start climbing up the hill.) There is supposed to be a spring with drinking water nearby (I didn't see it).

The shelter is in a secluded spot, a short walk (<1km?) up the hill from Katsuura town, directly next to the trail to Kakurinji (#20). Signs indicate that pilgrims are permitted to sleep here. The two entrances to the shelter are open, but sleeping platforms are enclosed on three sides and the roof is in good condition - good protection in most weather conditions. There is a WC cabin on the same patch of land. No water. No cushions. Pilgrims who stay overnight will need to bring water and a sleeping mat as well as sleeping bag etc. The nearest store is an old mom-and-pop grocery in Katsuura but the selection of food items is probably better at the Lawson convenience store some kilometers before Katsuura.
