Immerse Yourself in the Fascinating World of Moss in "Moss Girls' Stay"
- Oirase Keiryu Hotel
Hoshino Resorts Oirase Keiryu Hotel, the only resort hotel along the Oirase Gorge, is holding “Moss Girls’ Stay,” a lodging plan with moss-centered experiences, from May 7th to July 31st, 2020. This plan invites guests to the world of moss and offers experiences that allow them to feel the charm of moss directly, such as with moss-themed rooms and meals or moss-observing activities. This program is aimed at guests who want to discover a new appeal of Japanese nature.
The Oirase Gorge, with its stable water volume and rare flooding, is the ideal habitat for moss, since moss prefers a moist environment. The Oirase Gorge is home to about 300 species of moss out of about 1800 species that can be found in Japan. It was designated as a “Precious Moss-covered Forest”, of which there are 28 in the country, by the Bryological Society of Japan in 2013. Because of that, the Oirase Gorge is attracting attention as a moss observation spot.
A “Moss Girl” signifies a female moss fan fascinated by the beautiful and deep world of moss. The best therapy for a Moss Girl is going to a forest with a magnifying glass and enjoying the different species of moss. Hoshino Resorts Oirase Keiryu Hotel has been providing the “Moss Girls’ Stay” lodging plan from 2013 in order to enable more people to become interested in moss, just like Moss Girls. Four experiences are offered as an entrance to the world of moss through which guests can feel the charm of moss directly.
