Haunted AccommodationOne of the oldest hotels in the entire world, Hoshi Ryokan has been around for about 1,300 years! Although ghostly apparitions haven't made an appearance in the hotel recently, the very creation of the hotel can be connected to the eerie world of the spirits. In 717, a Buddhist monk spent a night at the Hakusan mountain and the mountain god visited him in his sleep, telling him about a miraculous spring with healing waters. The god instructed the monk to discover this spring and turn that place into a healing spot everyone could access. After doing this, the monk entrusted this secret to his disciple, who built an inn, the Hoshi Ryokan, so that everyone could benefit from the miraculous spring.
