Mt. Daisen is blessed with immense richness. As a sacred mountain at the very heart of Japanese spiritual belief, its majestic beech forests have been offered a level of protection rarely seen across the nation. These natural filters of air and water provide the mountain slopes and nearby fisheries with an abundance of nutrients, resulting in the finest quality of ingredients and products. Produce of Daisen, ranging from fresh meat, dairy products, vegetables, fruits and more are known as the most luxuriant of goods, the best of the best. The sacred mountain provides the surrounding area with everything it needs for the finest, richest of life.

It was with this inherent richness in mind that ITADAKI DAISEN was established as a luxurious place where visitors too can enjoy and indulge in the bounty of the mountain. ITADAKI is a luxury penthouse-style apartment ideally situated to nourish the body and soul. The views from its balcony will take your breath away as you gaze down upon the Bay of Miho and the verdant mountain slopes below. On clear days, you can see all the way across to the
historic Oki Islands, so remote that they once served as a place of exile for cloistered Emperors.

Within walking distance, guests at ITADAKI DAISEN can dine in local eateries which serve dishes made from the finest local ingredients in traditional settings. Hot springs loved by locals and visitors alike can be enjoyed as the stresses of everyday life seep away into the healing waters. The Daisen-ji temple complex, including a magnificent shrine set in a forest, provides opportunity for visitors to thank the Gods as the locals do or pray for future happiness.Enjoy a luxurious stay at ITADAKI DAISEN and invigorate your body and soul.
