Beniya Mukayu is a cosy 17-room hotel that embraces a wild garden with red pine, cherry, maple, camellia and many other trees in the mountains of Yakushiyama, Yamashiro Onsen.

Sun-dappled leaves wave in the breeze against the backdrop of a blue sky, and a pleasant scent of trees wafts in the air. Leave behind your daily routine and spend a quiet, blissful time tuning in to the rhythms of nature here.

The hotel is committed to serving cuisine with the greatest affection and care, choosing the finest ingredients in season from a wide range of food products in Kaga and Noto, as well as building up Mukayu’s cuisine originality in an effort to renew your inspiration every time. They prepare various drinks, including Japanese sake and wines, for you to enjoy your dinner even better. The selection of dinnerware, such as Kutani chinaware or Yamanaka and Wajima lacquerware, should also present a sense of the cuisine culture in Kaga.

The building’s open-plan design will give you a constant awareness of the beautiful surrounding landscape. Every room is equipped with an open-air bath so that you can mentally and physically relax in your own private spa.


The “Spa Entei Sejutsu-in,” located in the “Horin Entei” area, provides the “Yakushiyama treatment,” our signature treatment developed under the inspiration from over a thousand-year history of the healing spot of Yakushiyama at Yamashiro Onsen. The treatment uses hot spring water, which is rich in life-invigorating minerals, and medical herbs, which is full of wondrous blessings of nature. Feel the components of the hot spring water and medical herbs lavishly absorbed in your body and let your five senses fully enjoy the deep, comfortable relaxation. At the approach to the Spa, Kenya Hara’s artwork, “Tsukubai,” welcomes you.

The “Horin,” which is adjacent to the Spa, is a spacious area with a forest of 25 pillars. Looking out over the sacred red pine tree in the center, the terrace reaches out for the wild garden. In the “Horin dining,” you can enjoy your dinner and breakfast in the garden view. You are also welcome to join a Yoga class starting at seven every morning. Please drop into the library during your stay where you can check out books, CDs and DVDs for your room.
