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.
