Sake-brewery hotel
KURABITO STAY

This old house, where the kurabito used to stay, has been remodeled into a sake-brewery hotel. Located on the grounds of the brewery, this inn is a special place where, after the sake-brewing experience, you can spend time enjoying the kurabito atmosphere of the past. Here you can reflect on the origins of Japanese Sake culture and sense the dignified lives led by Japanese people who, close to the gods of nature, have made promises and appeased the spirits of the dead.

A ryokan founded in the Muromachi period
Saku Hotel, featuring a natural hot spring

Founded in 1428, this is the oldest ryokan in Nagano Prefecture. This is the place where Saku carp were first raised, and here you can enjoy historic carp cuisine. In addition, the hotel’s hot-spring water is rich in metasilicic acid, an ingredient used in face lotions, so the hotel is also popular as a place to get beautiful skin.

Cuisine

The hotel has been serving its house specialty — carp cuisine — for a long time. In fact, this carp cuisine is mentioned in documents dating back 400 years. Boiled in a tsugitashi-style sauce, the carp has a rich, deep flavor. The textures of the skin, meat, and eggs are pleasantly different, and you will want to be sure to enjoy some local Sake along with the carp.
