The Shintō pilgrim lodge situated atop Mt. Haguro has a rich history, once serving as a temple. Even after its conversion to Shintoism in the 19th century, Saikan continued its tradition of welcoming travelers and offering the shojin-ryori cuisine. As a significant site for Dewa Sanzan, Saikan hosts numerous religious activities, particularly during the Shoreisai festival at the year’s end. Reservations for Saikan are exclusively accepted via phone, and our team can assist you in arranging a reservation at no cost. Please reach out if you require language assistance. It’s essential to note that pilgrim lodges do not provide private amenities; instead, they feature shared bathrooms and toilets. Additionally, rooms are typically not lockable.
