Daisen Guest House “Ju-an” was founded in June 2014 in the “Daisen Temple” area at the foot of Tottori's most famous mountain; “Daisen”.
While spending my days working at a Japanese inn in Daisen and going mountain climbing or travelling the world on my days off, I began to dream that one day I will be opening my very own guest house which will be as splendid as those that I had seen on my many travels, situated on this mountain that I love”.
7 years chasing this dream , and acquaintances who supported this long-held dream of mine led me to the “Daisen Kotobukisou” (大山寿荘（だいせんことぶきそう）), a small inn which was about to close its’ doors to 40 years of history. The owner graciously allowed me to take over the building and run it as a new inn. My dream of opening my own guest house finally has become a reality. In the spirit of maintaining the much loved atmosphere of the Kotobukisou inn, I am naming the guest house “Ju-an” (寿庵(じゅあん)),which combines the kanji “寿” read as “kotobuki” or “ju”, inherited from the previous inn’s name, that means joyful and the kanji “庵“ read as “an” to symbolise the location near the Daisen Temple and its’ historical background.
Ju-an is the best a place for anyone and everyone. It welcomes climbers,travelers, locales of Daisen area who have come to enjoy the scenary that this beautifularea provides. The aim of this inn is to create a place where everyone will feel welcomed. The guest house I have envisioned is a place which provides customers of all walks of life to intermingle and to develop new connections and although it is still in the process of reaching this vision, I do hope to slowly build on my dream with people who come by the guest house. I hope, from the bottom of my heart that “Ju-an” will provide many visitors with an opportunity of experiencing for exciting encounters, developing new connections and lasting relationships in the near future..
