World’s Oldest Hotel

Roughly 175km west of Tokyo, Nisiyama Onsen Keiunkan is officially the oldest hotel in the world as verified by Guinness World Records. Nestled within a mountainous region, it’s surrounded by natural hot springs that have helped attract visitors for world's oldest hotel nisiyama-onsen-keiunkan-hotel-japanmore than 1,300 years. Although the six different baths at the resort are open for use 24 hours a day, tradition dictates that men and women frequent them at different times. The hotel offers both Japanese and Western-style rooms and despite the age of the venue, all the bathrooms thankfully offer modern amenities.

It is interesting that Japan has a bit of a monopoly on ancient hotels (the six oldest are all in the Land of the Rising Sun),
