WELCOME TO KAWAGUCHI.   OSHI HOUSE 御師(おし)の家   This house(UMEYA) dates to the Edo period (1776) and remains the only extant domestic building in Kawaguchi originally used by an oshi. Oshi were a type of religious practitioner associated with specific shrines, in this case the Asama shrine. Their role involved guidingvisitors through the shrine or temple and offering prayer (kito) on their behalf as well as providing lodgings and the like.There was a house of OSHI of about 140 houses in the heyday. Twice a year during spring and autumn oshi traveled from the town to the countryside offering prayers in exchange for donations and encouraging people to climb Mount Fuji as a means of obtaining spiritual advancement. During the Edo period climbing the mountainbecame a popular endeavor with many people being cared for by the Oshi at this residence as they made their physical and spiritual preparation to climb the mountain, setting out from the Asana shrine. UMEYA ANNEX is new house 30years ago.The location next . Umeya Annex is located in Fujikawaguchiko, 2.4 km from Lake Kawaguchi. Mount Fuji is 19 km from the property. Free WiFi is featured throughout the property.
私は、1月25日にワクチン接種の3回目を終了しました。現在、我が家は山梨県が指定した「やまなしグリーン・ゾーン認証」を受けた宿泊施設です。今まで2階の2部屋をそれぞれお客様をお泊めいたしておりましたが、2部屋を一日一組のお客様に限定してご提供することにいたしました。シャワールームもトイレも一組のお客様の専用となりますので、安心してご利用いただけると思います。あらたに、ベランダに露天風呂・足湯の設備をご用意いたしました。ご満足いただけると思います。 我が家は、江戸時代末まで御師の家として富士山に登る人々をお泊めし安全祈願などの祈祷をしてお客様をお送りしていました。昨年は、富士登山もできず残念でした。2階のベランダからは富士山が望めます。これから桜の開花に向かって、だんだん暖かくなってきます。河口湖湖畔の桜や新倉浅間公園(忠霊塔)の桜も人の心を和ましてくれるでしょう。自然をご堪能ください。
