Japan is famous worldwide for its hospitality, whose best examples can be found in ryokans, the Japanese traditional inns that have been welcoming travelers for centuries – indeed, they are the best showcases of their regions’ culture.

Beniya Mukayu is a small boutique ryokan that has been run and operated by the Nakamichi family since 1928. Throughout its long history, Beniya Mukayu has developed very strong bonds with local people and it is committed to preserving the Kaga region and its ancestry while sharing local traditions, food, and crafts with the guests to build a more sustainable future.

Meaning “richness in emptiness”, Mukayu is the core concept of the ryokan and it can be appreciated everywhere: in the architecture as well as in the surrounding nature, food, spa, but more than anything in the heartfelt hospitality for which Beniya Mukayu was awarded the RELAIS & CHATEAUX Welcome Trophy in 2013. “Making guests happy is the reason for the existence for Beniya Mukayu” - following the example of the Nakamichi, the staff are encouraged to treat guests as family members and to strive for excellence in their respective fields.

If you…
