ZEN Guesthouse Konichi-an

Shirahama Onsen Minshuku

"Rediscover Your Inner Peace" is the concept of ZEN Guesthouse Konichi-an.  This boutique lodging is a renovated Japanese home in a quiet residential area within walking distance of the JR Shirahama train station.  The owner, Noriko Furukubo, with passion and integrity transformed the building with the kind help of friends and supporters, doing as much as possible by hand, maintaining the nostalgic look and feel of Old Japan.  The house, originally her grandparents, has two guestrooms and a communal area, with convenient amenities such as free drinks, refrigerator, toaster and microwave.  In front of the house is small Japanese garden style green space.  Lovingly decorated with antiques, Noriko hopes that this authentic touch of Japanese culture will facilitate guests to rediscover their inner peace during their stay at ZEN Guesthouse Konichi-an.

ZEN Guesthouse Konichi-an can only accept reservations 2 months or less in advance.  Thank you for your understanding.

Description

Meaning of Guesthouse Name

Zen guesthouse Konichi-anZen is a Japanese school of Buddhism which emphasizes the value of meditation and intuition rather than ritual worship or study of scriptures.

"Zen" is a term that designates a simple, relaxed, and unattached state of being.

"Konichi-an (好日庵)", has its origin in the Zen concept, "Nichi-nichi-kore-ko-nichi (日日是好日)" which refers to a state of enlightenment.

These words remind us that each day is a precious and irreplaceable gift.
