Why would a bookstore build a guesthouse?

Kinosaki Onsen has a history of 1300 years

I was doing a bookstore here, and it was like,
"Are you really taking your time?"" Have you

traveled on a tied schedule while minding your time?I always thought

that the culture people who came to Jozaki in the past wrote while spending time at the inn, took a bath, changed their mood, and then wrote again.

People with the disease visited the temple and said hello to the god of the springs, and then they took a dip in the springs and healed their wounds and diseases.
Yes, this place is "a place where you can spend your time",

so our bookstore added the functionality of the inn.

I would like you to touch a book in this place, and if you want to take a breath, I would like you to take a bath in the adjacent bathing area after giving thoughts to the old bathing guests at the onsen temple.
If you want to talk to people for a minute, I want you to mingle with the locals at the cafe bar, have a light drink, and finally have a good night's sleep in the 2nd floor lodge.

I don't want you to travel
around town, but I want you to

know that you can't afford the luxury of hospitality.
Through books, hot springs, and encounters with travelers,
I want people to have a different time than usual.

The bookstore is a place where people gather, and
I aim to be a bookstore where people can stay.

② There is no bath or shower. Kinosaki Onsen's outer water is open from 7: 00 in the morning (with one exception), so please use it.
