Nishiyama Onsen Keiunkan is a hotel located near naturally occurring hot springs in Hayakawa, Japan. Founded in 705 AD, it has been owned by the same family for an incredible 52 generations. This location is thought to be the oldest bar in continuous operation. This fact was reinforced when Guinness World Records officially recognised the title in 2011. It offers 35 rooms and was last renovated in 1997.
