Our guests are invited to join the special tea ceremony in the small tea house located in our garden, performed by the tea master and the owner of Beniya Mukayu, Mr. Nakamichi. We believe it will be a very memorable and cultural experience for our guests. Our tea ceremony is a symbol of Japanese hospitality “Omotenashi”.
To discover Yamashiro Onsen, the Sacred land”
We offer the Yamashiro walking tour, which will take you to explore the history of the oldest hot spring in town. Our guest could also visit the Yakuoin Onsen Ji temple, Hattori Jinja shrine, and Kitaoji Rosanjin`s pottery artist house. This tour will help our guest to understand our inspiration of Yakushiyama (signature spa) concept.
Our Spa’s signature treatment is named “Yakushiyama Treatment”. “Yakushiyama” means “Mount of the healing Buddha”. The name is derived from the history of hundreds of years ago. They used to be a great Buddhist temple where Mukayu is located now. In those days, priests healed people using hot spring water and medicinal herbs.
Inspired by that long and rich history of healing hot springs, we conceived our unique Yakushiyama treatment, using hot spring water and various medicinal herbs and plants, as a tribute to those times.
