Rooms at Hanamurasaki
Hanamurasaki is a luxurious ryokan in Japan's Hokuriku Region (北陸地方, Hokuriku Chiho) located in Yamanaka Onsen Higashi Town (山中温泉東町, Yamanaka Onsen Higashimachi), Kaga City.
Hanamurasaki also received a 5-star rating from a professional panel.
It is easily accessible thanks to the free shuttle bus services running from Kaga Hot Spring Station (加賀温泉駅, Kaga Onsen Eki).
There are 4 types of rooms: Standard Room, Spacious Room, Comfort Suite Spring, and the Comfort Suite Summer.
All the rooms face the Kakusen Gorge (鶴仙渓, Kakusenkei), so you can enjoy a beautiful view of the valleys and rivers from your window, while enjoying the traditional Japanese atmosphere of a high-class ryokan.
‘Comfort Suite’ rooms are equipped with western-style rooms, so that foreign visitors can relax while feeling the traditional Japanese ambiance.
The ‘Comfort Suite’ rooms have half-open-air baths that use 100% natural spring water and a variety of amenities.
The rooms are introduced at 0:40 in the video.
Hanamurasaki's Hot Springs
The hot springs, the main attraction of the ryokan, are introduced at 2:40 in the video.
At the open-air observatory hot spring ‘Hirahira’ at Hanamurasaki, you can bathe while observing the beautiful Kakusen gorge.
Having both a cypress bath as well as a rock bath, it is quite a luxurious space.
Dining at Hanamurasaki
Hanamurasaki offers ‘A La Carte Kaiseki’ where you can enjoy Kaiseki (a type of appetizer), with the cuisine of your choice from a menu of about 50 different items.
Each piece of tableware is also handmade, allowing you to enjoy the food with not just your mouth, but your eyes as well.
We recommend trying out some of the seafood dishes. The impactful plate garnished with an entire snow crab is a sight to behold.
For those of you who don't want to bother choosing your dishes one by one, a number of model courses, such as ‘Seasonal Kaiseki (旬懐石, Shun Kaiseki)’ and ‘Flower Kaiseki (華懐石, Hana Kaiseki)’, are available so you can enjoy Kaiseki Cuisine (懐石料理, Kaiseki Ryori) unlike that of any other ryokan.
These meals are introduced from 0:52 in the video.
The ryokan also has facilities such as ‘Stay Dining Nihon’ and ‘Bar Lounge.’
