moksaは、日本仏教の母山とも称される
比叡山の麓の“八瀬”という場所にあります。
ここには、古くは壬申の乱で背中に矢傷を負った
大海人皇子の傷を癒すために村人が献上した”八瀬の窯風呂”という
日本最古の蒸湯場があり、それ以降、
心身を浄める場所として、貴族や武士たちに愛されてきました。

「moksa」とは、梵語で”解脱”や”解放”を意味する言葉です。
この八瀬という場所で、
現代の暮らしに疲れた身と心を清め
生まれ変わるような体験をしていただきたいという思いが、
この名に込められています。

A HOTEL DESIGNED FOR REBIRTH.

 

moksa is located in the village of Yase at the foot ofMt. Hiei,
one of the two sacred mountains thatgave birth to Japanese Buddhism.
Yase is home toJapan’s oldest steam-bath, created 1,350 years ago
by the local villagers to heal an arrow wound sufferedin
the Jinshin War by Prince Oami (later to become therevered
Emperor Tenmu.). From that time,Yase came to be loved by samurai
and nobles as a placefor healing both mind and body.

The word “moksa” means “liberation from earthlycares” in Sanskrit.
The name “moksa” encapsulates ourdesire for this place in Yase
to provide an experiencethat washes away the cares of modern life,
and re-invigorates your mind and body.

A wood-fired restaurant kitchen that uses freshvegetables and
wild herbs from Ohara…Private steambath saunas using
pure flowing waterfrom the Takano stream…
Tea served in a variety oftraditions to stimulate
the circulation of “ki” energy…
