Welcome to Koshu Nishiyama Hot Spring, Keiunkan - an inn with free-flowing hot springs with 1300 years of history. The history of the Keiunkan inn dates back 1300 years to the year 705AD (the 2nd year of the Keiun era), when Fujiwara Mahito founded the inn. Because it was founded in the Keiun era, the inn was thus named Keiunkan. The hot spring has flowed freely without interruption since then and is loved by many townsfolk, military commanders and cultured peoples as a secluded place deep in the mountains of the Kai region. Keiunkan, to this day, still embodies the unchanging hospitality of the heart of Japanese harmony for all of our guests. In the Guinness World Records, Keiunkan is certified as the world's most historical inn. — World's Longest-Standing Inn Founded in 705AD— History of Keiunkan The Nishiyama Hot Spring, Keiunkan is said to have had many townsfolk and military commanders of the warring period visiting it.
