法師 Hoshi

Hoshi / Ishikawa Kaga・Komatsu・Tatsunokuchi 1


This year, this month, this day. 
「There shall only be this once in a lifetime」
An omotenashi hospitality tradition that has continued for 1300 years, Hoshi is an inn that has walked hand in hand with Japan's history. 

The inn was established in 718, the second year of the Yoro era. 
We have even been named the 「world's oldest hot spring inn」 in the Guinness Book of World Records. 

It is said that the shugendo monk Taicho Daishi received a divine message from the mountain deity Hakusan Daigongen to build this inn 1300 years ago. Hoshi has been in operation since that time. The current master of this inn is the 46th in the long line of masters to carry on the teachings of the disciple who was put in charge of Hoshi. 

Upon entering you will be greeted with green tea. There is no need to concern yourself with formalities or manners. Just relax and let the strains of travel leave your body. 

Located in the middle of the inn is a Japanese garden that represents the essence of nature and has been preserved since ancient times. The old trees that have grown in this garden tell tales of history. Lose yourself in the moment and relax among the beautiful natural landscape of the garden. 

Our seven types of carefully designed guest rooms are each named after a different season. Relax in your serene room as you gaze upon the Japanese garden that changes with each season. 

Awazu Onsen is the reason that Hoshi was built. It is one of the oldest secluded hot springs in the Hokuriku area and it is said that these springs were a gift from the mountain gods to relieve and cure ailments and injuries of humans. Soak in the natural spring water and let yourself be healed inside and out. 

Hoshi in an inn that is rich in ancient history. Come and experience this profound world that is so closely tied to history.

This time, I was indebted to me on a trip with four girls. On the first day of my Kanazawa trip, I stayed and looked forward to a historical inn. After arriving, it was a check-in after having settled down with the matcha service. Everyone was very pleased to have upgraded the maisonette room because the room was vacant. I am very satisfied with the food and bath, and I am grateful that it was the first day of a fun trip. When I come to Awazu Onsen, I would like to take care of the lawyer next time.
