Recommendation by Lemi
At first, it was thought that Hoshi Ryokan was the very oldest in the world. Turns out, it was founded 13 years after Nishiyama Onsen Keiunkan! Hoshi Ryokan has withstood the test of time, playing with the changing seasons through their suites and feasts. Each part of the ryokan is inspired by the flow of time: luxuriate in the Autumn Wing, appreciate the gardens in the Spring, kick back in the comfy Summer, or look back on the ryokan’s long history in the Winter. Likewise, the menu is designed to highlight ingredients from the region’s harvest. Opt for the Hakusan Course to try the chef’s picks for the day. Their Kaga Course sticks to the classics—tried favorites that any first-timer should try.
