Cape Suzu is located at the tip of the Noto Peninsula in Ishikawa Prefecture.

Featured prominently in numerous legends, it’s also known as the “Sacred Cape.”

On this cape, there’s a hatago that receives
as many as 400,000 requests for accommodations per year.

The inn, nestled against a backdrop of sheer cliffs,
has a long history as a secluded hot spring.

It’s Yoshigaura Onsen Lamp no Yado, founded 450 years ago.

The lamps emit a subdued glow,

as if gently telling tales from a bygone era.

The lamps themselves, handed down through many generations,

seem to conceal a secret story.

In front of the inn is an illuminated
100-meter swimming pool,

and right in the middle is an open-air bath equipped with an observation platform.

From here, you can enjoy amazing sights of the great outdoors.

It’s an inn shrouded in an air of mystery from noon to night,

fusing traditional Japanese architecture with a resort atmosphere.

Let’s see just what makes Yoshigaura Onsen Lamp no Yado so appealing.
