Hot Spring

Spring quality: Simple alkaline spring water
Guests begin their treatments after soaking in hot spring water to enhance the treatment effects.
We also offer a hot spring-footbath after the treatments with curative herbs from Hakusan Mountain and individually selected medicinal herbs.
Hot spring water has benefits such as body warming, hydrostatic pressure, buoyancy and pharmacological.
“Warming effect” brings the heat to the body, and improves the blood/lymphatic circulation and metabolism. Moreover, body wastes or toxins can be removed. “Hydrostatic pressure” causes blood vessels to contract, and sluggish circulation around the foot can be eased by pushing up the blood. The rate of breathing and the cardiopulmonary function will be also increased by pressing the diaphragm and lungs. “Buoyancy effect” alleviates the pressure in the muscles and joints, and the body will be released from tension. Regarding “pharmacological” the spring quality is alkaline simple hot spring, known as “Spring water for beautiful skin”. It is believed to be effective for neuralgia, muscle pains/aches, joint pains, stiff shoulders, fluid retention in the joints, bruise, sprain, chronic digestive diseases, hemorrhoids, sensitivity to cold, convalescence stage, fatigue recovery and health improvement.

 

Medicinal Herb Matrix “Ho, Sha, Ryu, Cho”



Yakushiyama and Entei Spa

The Yamashiro hot spring has been nurtured in a close relationship with “Hakusan (White Mountain),” a sacred mountain in the area. In the Heian period (about 1,000 years ago), the five Hakusan temples were completed, which came to play a central role in people’s beliefs in Hakusan. The Yakuoin Onsenji temple in Yamashiro thrived as the main temple among the five Hakusan Temples. The area around Yakuoin Onsenji used to be called “Yakushiyama (Healing Buddha’s Mountain)” for its high spirituality, which was a place for training and learning for Buddhist monks, and at the same time, a place for healing, where the monks cured people by providing hot spring baths and preparing medicinal herbs. Beniya Mukayu is a hot-spring hotel quietly standing on a hill of this sacred Yakushiyama, where the main hall of Yakuouin Onsenji was once located. At our “Entei spa”, we provide “Yakushiyama treatment” and other treatments for mental and physical health care using hot spring water and medicinal herbs, inheriting the spirit of traditional Yakushiyama hot spring and herbal remedies provided by local monks.
