Samurai Slept In The World’s Oldest Hotel 1000+ Years Ago, And Here’s How It Looks Inside

What does the collapse of the Berlin wall have in common with the establishment of the Kingdom of England? They’re both younger than the Nishiyama Onsen Keiunkan, a resort in Japan that has been INN business since 705 AD, and is officially recognized by The Guinness World Records as the oldest hotel in the world. Over the centuries, it has grown quite a guest list, including everyone from highest-ranking politicians to samurai. Most of them probably came to the resort for the same reason it is visited today: the hot springs, which have been flowing around the complex since its opening. The main trick behind the hotel’s 1,313-year longevity seems to be family experience and expertise.

Volgens zijn zaakwaarnemer wil hij alleen over groenten praten. Lees verder
