Half a millennium ago, Yakuro Yukitada Asaba founded Shuzenji temple. At the gate he positioned monks as guards and housed them in a lodge which still exists today, albeit as one of Japan’s most exquisite hot spring resorts, featuring a small lake, a café salon with minimalist art, Harry Bertoia chairs, and a Noh theater from the 19th century. A seventh generation Asaba family member assembled the theater with parts from an old shrine that he transported all the way from Tokyo, and today the gold masks of the actors reflect in the surrounding waters while guests enjoy the Noh performances directly from their rooms.
