Ancient Japanese Hotel That Has Been Functioning For 1298 Years

Houshi Ryokan is an inn in Japan that has been run by the same dedicated family for the last 1,300 years.

It opened in the Ishikawa prefecture in 718 and, since then, 46 generations of the Houshi family have looked after it. 

It is the oldest family-run business still operating in the world and very nearly the oldest hotel in operation.
