Come enjoy one of these dishes while gazing out through the large glass windows at Furuiwaya’s spectacular scenery.
An onsen waiting at the end of the journey’s path is one of the true charms of travel. Come enjoy some peaceful relaxation in the lodge’s bathing facilities lined with fieldstones and the natural onsen waters of Furuiwaya.
Economical ski and golf packages are offered as well.
In Shikoku, a region that has fostered the O-henro pilgrimage since long in the past, there exists a tradition of hospitality. This is borne of a spirit of appreciation for the hardships pilgrims endured in the past in order to make the pilgrimage, both in terms of physical endurance and economical considerations, and of prayerful sentiment for their safety along the pilgrimage path. This hospitality takes the forms of constructing places for pilgrims to rest, providing these places with foods and beverages, providing affordable lodging and more…
Keep FURUIWAYASŌ in mind as a base for sightseeing at the prefectural nature park and place of scenic beauty Furuiwaya or for making pilgrimage stops at Fudasho temples Daihō-ji (no. 44) and Iwaya-ji (no. 45) as well.
