Relais & Chateaux



Transcending 500 years of history…here, for you, now. Some 510 years ago, Yakuro Yukitada Asaba came to this place to found Shuzenji temple for the Soto Sect. Guarding the temple gates was the lodging for the monks, the beginnings of Asaba, handed down over generations within the same family. Amidst the hot springs of Shuzenji, the radiant greenery, the gentle flow of the river and sparkling birdsong, we are here to welcome you.


Japan's beautiful traditions, an homage to love for nature's every visage. On the wind crossing the water, hear the trees rustle and the birds sing... open a window, and savor the richness of the moment.
