What's Shukubo ?

What's Shukubo?

The name Shukubo consists of "Shuku", which means accommodation, and "Bo", which means temples.
There has been a temple where worshipers can stay for a long time at a pilgrimage site in Japan. Many places of worship are in remote places and places where the natural environment is severe.
As it is not possible to go on a day trip, it seems that accommodation facilities have been added to the temple of the worship site naturally.

Hoon-in responds to various allergies according to recent needs. For example, for gluten-free food use rice flour instead of wheat flour and also use organic soy sauce. Use grated radish organic soy sauce instead of miso and lemon juice instead of vinegar. The tempura pot also uses a pot for rice flour. Hoon-in's gluten-free food is not light and offers the same flavor and taste as ordinary Shojin dishes.
Allergic foods, such as gluten-free foods, need special preparation, so please make a reservation.
