The lodging with natural blessings of Mt. Daisen.

A "shukubo" is a lodging for monks and visitors to a temple or shrine. Kouyasan (Wakayama Pref.) and Zenkou-ji (Nagano Pref.) are famous for the number of "shukubo" in Japan. There are few "shukubo" in Chugoku district, and Sanrakuso is the only one "shukubo" in Daisen-ji. These days, "shukubou" is quite popular among foreign visitors as they can be exposed to Japanese culture through their stay. Of course you can also enjoy and feel Japanese culture in Sanrakuso which has a 400 year-old history.

This lodging has two great features; located at the base of Mt. Daisen, the highest peak in Chugoku district, and serving a vegetarian meal made of wild vegetables.
"Daisen-ji sandou" which is made of field stones is the longest approach in Japan. This lodging is located along the approach to Daisen-ji. After climbing up the stone steps and move further into the premises, you will find the building of the lodging surrounded by woods. As the building is located in nature, nature sounds of wind and insects make an impression that you are in another world because. Needless to say, all guest rooms are Japanese-style room.

They serve a meal mainly made of wild vegetables, rare as a vegetarian meal. Normally a vegetarian meal is made of vegetables, grain and beans without meat and fish. However the soil of around Mt. Daisen is too poor for growing crops, so wild vegetables, the special product of Mt. Daisen has been used instead of ordinary vegetables. Wild vegetables needs a lot of preparation time because they spoil quickly. How to mix and preserve the seasoning has been transmitted for generations. It can't be a whim. This meal is also recommended for vegetarians.
The meal is not bland though meat and fish are not used. Instead, it has rich flavor thanks to sticky rice and sesame. The meal served here is a "colorful vegetarian meal" and pleasant to the eye because it is a feast.

This lodging is making the most of natural blessing of Mt. Daisen and has a sense of the typical "shukubo". A trend of the time gives you easy access to Daisen-ji where the general public of the past couldn't visit.
