An empty room will be filled with light because of its emptiness." These are the words of the famous Chinese philosopher Zhuangzi, who lived 2,300 years ago. His words signify that a mind entirely free of everything exists in a place of nothing ─ a place belonging to nowhere."MUKAYU" is also a word from Zhuangzi, meaning "non-existence", "non-purpose" or "the natural state as it is", which he uses in an essay as "MUKAYU country".In "MUKAYU country", the values of people are overturned. Things considered useless are instead regarded as possessing great value.Take for example a large tree standing beside a road. Because the tree is bent and twisted, it is of no use for timber and so is left uncut. And because it has grown so tall, it is able to give pleasant shade to weary travelers on the road.Consider the time that remains as empty space in a busy schedule book. It is in fact time filled with freedom, because it is empty. It is the peace of mind found in the shade of a large tree that had initially appeared useless. Such are the thoughts and feelings that reside in the name of this inn, "MUKAYU".

The windows of every guest room are widely open towards the garden to invite nature to pour inside. The guests are encouraged to tune themselves into the rhythms of nature. All the rooms feature a private open-air hot spring bath overlooking the garden, allowing a soak in onsen at any time you like and as long as you want.

Unique Experience

Hotel town Yamashiro Onsen was written as “山背温泉” in the old days, meaning ‘a land of rushing hot springs backed by the mountain.’ This Mountain refers to the sacred Mt. Hakusan. The clear water from Mt. Hakusan forms a wealthy natural environment that nurtures the ancient beech forests alongside various animals and plants. Those living here with the natural treasury inherit "food", "crafts" and "culture" for generations; rice, sake, soy sauce, agriculture, fishery, Kutani potterly, Yamanaka lacquer, Japanese paper and so on... These support the daily lives of local people and at the same time Beniya Mukayu’s hospitality. We have prepared a variety of experiences unique to Beniya Mukayu, in which you might get to know more about people’s livelihood with nature in the area of Kaga.
