櫻池院について

当院は、高野山にある塔頭(たっちゅう)寺院のうちの一つで、1127年に白河天皇第四皇子覚法法親王によって開基されました。山内の西方に位置し、伽藍や霊宝館(宝物館)にも近く、朝夕の散歩に最適なロケーションにあります。 建物はこじんまりと落ち着いた雰囲気を失わず、自慢の精進料理は季節によって内容を変え、素材の味を大切にして皆様にお出ししております。 隣接する成慶院は、武田信玄公の菩提寺であり明治時代より櫻池院が管理しております。

最近は日本だけでなく、世界中からお客様が来られております。皆様それぞれに「宿坊ならではの安らぎと厳格さ」を意識して日々ご給仕させていただいております。
