Yagyu-no-sho,IZU-shuzenji.

柳生の庄 伊豆修善寺温泉

Yagyu-no-Sho dates back to 1959 when the ryokan restaurant Yagyu opened in Shiba Shirokane,Tokyo.

From this beginning as a purveyor of authentic Kyoto-style kaiseki cuisines.

Yagyu-no-Sho emerged out of our founder's desire to further dedicate himself to the culinary arts.

In 1970, inspired by the traditional scenery of Japan that remained unchanged for centuries on the mountainside of Shuzenji Temple,our founder decided that it should be home to an inn of quality and distinction.

From his involvement in kendo, the founder took the revered  Yagyu name and christened his newly built hot-spring inn - a classic sukiya-style structure nestled in a copse of bamboo - as Yagyu-no-Sho.

In the decades since, in accordance with our founder's philosophy of "a conscientious inn of sumptuous comfort,"

we have consistently sought to make our inn a place where traditional cuisine,baths,scenery,hospitality, and the beauty of Japanese architecture come together as one.

In 2009, to mark our 40th anniversary, we undertook renovations of the entrance,baths, and all guest suites onto authentic honsuki style using generations-old techniques of master craftsmen.

With conscientious hospitality as our guiding light,

we pledge our utmost to provide our guests with a truly beautiful and wonderful Japanese-inn experience.

More About Japan

The eight islands of Japan sprang into existence through Divine Intervention.The first two gods who came into existence were Izanagi no Mikoto and Izanami no Mikoto, the Exalted Male and Exalted Female. It was their job to make the land for people to live on.They went to the bridge between heaven and earth and, using a jewel-encrusted halberd, Izanagi and Izanami churned up the sea into a frothy foam. As salty drips of water fell from the tip of the halberd the first island was formed. Its name was Onogoro.So far, so good. But when Izanagi and Izanami first met on their island, Izanami spoke to Isanagi without being spoken to first. Since she was the female, and this was improper, their first union created badly-formed offspring who were sent off into the sea in boats.The next time they met, Izanagi was sure to speak first, ensuring the proper rules were followed, and this time they produced eight children, which became the islands of Japan.I'm sure you did not fail to miss the significance of this myth for the establishment of Japanese formal society.At present, Japan is the financial capital of Asia. It has the second largest economy in the world and the largest metropolitan area (Tokyo.)Technically there are three thousand islands making up the Japanese archipelago. Izanagi and Izanami must have been busy little devils with their jewelled halberd...Japan's culture is highly technical and organized. Everything sparkles and swooshes on silent, miniaturized mechanisms.They're a world leader in robotics, and the Japanese have the longest life-expectancy on earth.Text by Steve Smith.
