Culture & History
Beniya Mukaya is ideally located if you wish to experience a little more of Japanese culture. You can head to nearby Yamashiro Onsen to explore the hot springs and temples, or choose from a range of immersive excursions - including a visit to the Maruhachi Tea Factory, a soba noodle making class, traditional paper making workshop, and trip to a working lacquerware studio. You can also visit the city of Kanazawa from here, a cultural gem nicknamed 'Little Kyoto'. Leave room in your suitcase as the property's boutique sells handmade pottery, fragrant bath products and beautiful yukata kimonos.
The enchanting Entei Spa embraces the healing heritage of the locality, offering a range of facials, body treatments, herbal wraps and massages. Each treatment is preceded by a soak in hot spring water to enhance the healing effects, as well as being rounded off by a hot spring foot bath using curative herbs from the locality. Complimentary yoga sessions are also held each morning.
Dining & Gourmet
The restaurant specialises in traditional multi-course kaiseki cuisine. Across the beautifully presented dishes (ten courses are served at dinner!) ingredients are sourced from the local area and Sea of Japan when possible, with menus changing to reflect the seasons. For foodies, the hotel hosts an immersive Japanese cookery class, inviting you to join the expert chefs to create an authentic menu of sushi and miso soup.
