Regarding the extent of damage to facilities and equipment caused by the earthquake at the Ryokan Yamamuro, I understand that it is within the range of use without problems and the ryokan is open for accommodation.

On January 1st, there were huge earthquakes in Ishikawa Prefecture.

We are safe.
Many damages have been found to the facilities and equipment of Ryokan Yamamuro.

The Japanese style bath of our ryokan is on the basement floor.
We would not open it until conditions calm down and the safety has been ensured.
Two shower rooms on the ground floor are available.

There are aftershocks continuously in Kanazawa.
Checking the Kanazawa City Tourism Association website would be recommended to visitors.

We appreciate that many people have contacted us with their concerns.

The Noto area has suffered extensive and irreversible damage, and the situation remains difficult in terms of evacuation and rescue.
We sincerely hope for the earliest recovery of all those affected by the disaster.

Thank you,
Bungo Yamamuro, host
