The Hoshi ryokan 法師旅館

One of the oldest hotels in the world

Listed in the Guinness Book as one of the oldest hotels in the world, the Hoshi Ryokan is also one of the oldest family businesses in the world. The establishment belongs to the Hoshi family for forty-six generations!

A garden at the heart of the establishment

 

The current owner, Zengoro Hoshi, represents the 46th generation. With his wife Chizuko, he perpetuates the establishment's tradition of hospitality and excellence. It consists of a hundred rooms, installed in four buildings placed in the shape of a diamond around a magnificent garden. In this haven of peace, mosses and plants flourish with the seasons. In a purely Japanese spirit, each of the establishment's wings bears the name of a season: there is of spring, summer, autumn, and winter. The onsen baths also have views of the garden to allow visitors to admire the different flowers throughout the year.
