All 25 rooms offer a view of the Ooigawa River flowing through a deep gorge. Only accessible by its own shuttle-boat, Hoshinoya is proud of its secluded location and strives to offer a quiet, meditative space ‘away from it all’.
The historical buildings, largely made of fragrant cedar wood, bring together strictly traditional architecture and the best of contemporary Japanese interior design.
