Hidden hot-spring retreat at Hijiori-Onsen

Hidden hot-spring retreat at Hijiori-Onsen

This is a rare chance to stay overnight at a hidden hot-spring village with a unique history. Hijiori-onsen is one of the ancient entrances to Dewasanzan, the 'Three Holy Mountains of Dewa'. A pilgrimage through all three mountains (Mt. Haguro, Mt. Gassan and Mt. Yudono) is believed to represent a journey of rebirth, with the mountains representing the present, the past and rebirth respectively. The journey gives pilgrims the chance to both reflect on their lives and reconnect with nature by receiving the spiritual power of the mountains. One way of receiving this power is to eat ‘Shojin Ryori’ (Japanese Shinto vegetarian cuisine) made with the wild local vegetables from the mountains. Traditonally, visitors would eat a Shojin Ryori meal made with vegetables and mushrooms from Mt. Gassan and purify themselves in the hot-spring water of Hijiori before beginning their pilgrimage.
