A stay in Japan would not be complete without tasting the uniquely Japanese drink, sake. Brewed by over 1,600 small scale sake breweries in Japan alone, it has been and continues to be an integral part of Japanese culture. The array offered can make choosing extremely difficult.

Our newly introduced Sake Pairing Menu offers guests the opportunity to try a curated collection of three sakes, handpicked by our in-house Sommelier, during the Kaiseki dinner at Beniya Mukayu.

Menu is available to reserve when booking via the website at least three days in advance.

Welcoming our new Byakuroku Terrace Suite in Early August 2018

Empty rooms fill with light and a mind entirely free of everything exists in a place of nothing. Located on the former site of the main hall of Yakuoin Onsenji, the main temple of five on Japan's sacred Mount Hakusan, Beniya Mukayu nurtures a close relationship with Hakusan or Sacred White Mountain and Yakushiyama (Healing Buddha’s Mountain), cherished for its high spirituality and a place for healing amongst pristine nature and hot springs.

Byakuroku, meaning "white green" is an opportunity to reimagine the old Yakushiyama, the area of the old Yakuoin Osenji Temple on which Beniya Mukayu is situated. Immerse yourself in the beauty of Mukayu's natural garden and hot springs, clear your mind and tune the senses into the rhythms of nature.

●1st floor views of Mukayu's natural Japanese garden with camellia and Japanese maples.

Thomas Ruff (born in 1958 in Zell am Harmersbach, Germany) has been a leading figure in contemporary photography since the 1990s when he emerged as part of the Becher School. Along with Andreas Gursky and Thomas Struth, Ruff studied photography with Bernd and Hilla Becher at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf.
The exhibition introduces a wide range of works by this world-renowned photographer, stretching from his earliest efforts to his most recent and never-before-shown photographs. Ruff was first acclaimed for a series of huge two-meter-high portraits. Since then, he has explored a variety of themes, including architecture, urban landscapes, nudes, and celestial bodies. Through these subjects, he has developed a unique vision of the world we live in.
The medium of photography, closely entwined with our vision and perception, is another important theme in Ruff’s work. He searches for new possibilities in photographic expression using a multitude of images as his materials. These not only include Ruff’s own pictures but everything from digital images from the Internet to old photographs he has collected.
This exhibition consists of a total of 18 series, approximately 160 works, including Ruff’s first effort Interieurs; Porträts, which earned him widespread acclaim; cassini and ma.r.s., inspired by his boyhood interest in outer space; and nude and jpeg, which examine visual and information spaces in the age of the Internet, and his most recent photographs, press ++.
