Welcome to Saikan Haguroyama-Sanrosho. This Buddhist temple is located in Haguroyama and is part of the Three Mountains of Dewa. It's an historical building, originally called Kezouin, but was rebuilt in 1697. Saikan Haguroyama-Sanrosho is a wooden temple with sliding doors, so doors cannot be locked though this only adds to the charm. Adventurous guests reach the temple by climbing up 2,466 stone steps, though there is also a bus you can take. From October to April it will be cold at night, so please bring warm clothes.

What I liked the most about this place, is not the place itself and certainly not the food that was plain and cold, it is the surroundings. Climbing up those stairs among beautiful trees was really great. When we arrive in ryokan, we were happy to see a big temple, very traditional. Atmosphere is great and peacefull.The building is a bit old and so are the rooms. The food seemed to be the best thing about this place, but we were disapointed. It has a nice small onsen, one for men, one for woman, which is nice after the cold night you are gonna spend here. For me it was definitely overpriced, my most expensive stay in japan but not the best one.

Good for leisure time

At first I was a little overwhelming looking at the ryokan because it looks very old but still well maintain. Arrived as early as 3pm but nothing much to do in this ryokan accept wandering around at the top of Mount Haguro. A pleseant place to stay and relax with onsen inside. The food is a little bit too much to eat I cannot finish all. The staff do not mind the guest, perhaps that is a good way. Overall, if you want to experience the first time living in ryokan, probably here is the best place to start.

Not completely satisfied

The location is a perfect spot if you wanna split the visit to the three mountain. Our plane landed in Shonai at noon and we decided to do the first path to Haguro then stop for the night and complete the second and third path the day after. The temple is on the top of the mt. Haguro, connected internally with the main temple and far 5 minutes from the bus stop that conduce pilgrims on 8th station of the mt. Gassan where start the path climb to the 2nd temple. First point of disappointment: I do not understand why the arrival time to 5 PM is so stricted when the dinner is served at 6 PM and most of that is cold and pre-prepared. We've completed the first path in hurry with the anxiety to be on time but after the check-in (few minutes) we waited 1 hours in our room for the dinner (served in a commune space). Arrived in the commune space for dinner we've noticed that all the western guests was arranged in the right side of the room with regular table despite the traditional table on floor of the other japanese guests, separated with a booth. Why? Second disappointment: During the dinner a man (monk?) gave to the japanese speaking people a long explanation that we don't understood, and after has come to us trying to explain the same with a very poorly english. The only thing we have understood was: come here tomorrow at 7 for the ceremony in the temple. The day afer we followed the instruction and at 7 sharp we were at the point but a woman accompanied us to the table for the breakfast (already prepared on the table). We had the suspicious that something was wrong because some of the guest wasn't there and some breakfasts was still intact. We ate our breakfast quicky and moved to the temple we've discovered that the guests were there for the purify ceremony that was almost gone and this pissed me off very much. I do not pretend to find a perfect english speaking in a place like that (I'm not a perfect english speaking person too) but for important details like that maybe a piece of paper with the istruction clearly explained can be helpful.

Relaxing night in Haguro sancho

We decided to visit the Dewa Sanzan area and go the Haguro san cho the first day, stay at the Ryokan the night and the day after go to Gas-san and Yudono san. The Ryokan is nice and the food is very good. The location is very quite and close to the temple area. The only suggestion for improvement is the possibility of providing guests with towels. In fact towels can only be rented and not available in the room.
