Shiroganeya epitomizes Japanese tranquility and demonstrates the country's exquisitely honed traditions. While you won't lift a finger, hotel staff will work tirelessly to make sure everything around you is always perfect. Traditional rooms with sliding doors and glossy wooden detailing completes the picture. Shiroganeya also features elegant Kaga cuisine, known for following the wholesome philosophy that simplicity is best.
The hot springs, or "on-sen" of Yamashiro near the temple-festooned city of Kaga, are the hotel's main draw. The hot springs are more than 1,000 years old and have been flowing through Shiroganeya's baths for more than a century. The piping hot, odorless water is said to improve circulation and alleviate joint pain.
The city of Kaga is filled with fascinating attractions, ancient sites, and annual festivals. Explore the many museums, join in celebrations such as the "Sakura" or cherry blossom festival, and take pictures of the massive shrines.
