‘Houshi Ryokan’ – A 1300 Year Old Hotel

Houshi Ryokan hotel is the oldest family-run business that is still operating in the world. Really enjoyed this mini documentary on the 1300 year old business, by Fritz Schuman.

A year ago, when traveling through Japan, I stayed at the Hiiragiya Ryokan in Kyoto. Definitely my most memorable hotel experience to date.

  1. Thanks so much for this recommendation!
    I bookmarked this and I booked a night here for my honeymoon in Japan.
    The experience was beautiful and I met the mother and the daughter the last day :)
