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.

Read more 次女の大学卒業祝いの家族旅行で宿泊させていただきました。夕食後、お祝いの品をメッセージカードと共に部屋まで届けていただき、家族みんなで感動しました。忘れられない素晴らしい思い出になりました。心よりお礼申し上げます。日本最古の温泉旅館ということで、1300年以上も歴史を紡いで来られたのは、こうしたおもてなしの心を受け継いで来られたからこそなのでしょう。接客やサービスの随所に、マニュアルを超えた心遣いを感じました。お値段もすごく良心的でしたので、機会があればまた利用させていただきたいと思っています。

We stayed at the family trip of the university graduation celebration of the second girl. After dinner, we sent the festive items to the room with a message card, and the whole family was impressed. It was a wonderful memory I can not forget. Thank you very much. About the oldest hot spring inn in Japan, it is probably because it has been able to spin the history for more than 1300 years because it has been able to inherit the spirit of such hospitality. I felt care beyond the manual in every part of customer service and service. The price was very conscientious, so I would like to use it again if there is an opportunity.

Read more 妻の誕生日のお祝い旅行でしたが、宿からサプライズの祝福とプレゼントがありました。妻も感激してました。 部屋の広さや料理、サービスの内容から、もっと料金が高くても全く問題ないと思います。というより歴史ある旅館ですし、あの質なら高くしておかないと、歴史ある旅館というより、逆に古くて質が低い宿と思われてしまうのでは。粟津温泉を、北陸を代表する宿として頑張ってほしく、他人に紹介したい旅館です。もう一度、夫婦若しくは親戚や友人、職場の同僚と行きたいです。

Although it was a celebration trip of my wife's birthday, there was a surprise blessing and a present from the inn. My wife was also impressed. From the room size and the food and service contents, I think that there is no problem even if the price is higher. Rather, it is a historic inn, and if it isn't high in that quality, it will be considered to be an old, low-quality lodging rather than a historic inn. We want you to do our best as a lodging representative of Hokuriku, and it is an inn you want to introduce Aizu hot spring to others. Once again, I would like to go with a couple, relatives, friends, work colleagues.
