Hogenji Temple has a history of more than 400 years.

It is not a special sacred site with a long history.
It is a temple that exists together with the local community and its inhabitants.

This temple hotel will be a new point of contact between temple and the local community, and we hope that it will continue to be a place for people to stay for the next 100 years or 200 years.

We hope that when you stay with us, you will enjoy the temple experience as well as the charms of the region.
