Have just spent a very relaxing two nights at Ryokan Fujiya. This is our fourth trip to Japan and this elegant Ryokan did not disappoint. Located right in the heart of Ginzan Onsen, it is a calm and peaceful inn. The staff were helpful and welcoming and the food very good. One of the best bits of this stay, was...

The aim was to find a luxurious onsen to enjoy as a couple and this meant it had to be private. After seeing some pictures online we knew Fujiya was the right choice. Designed by Kenjo Kuma of LV fame, the architecture was contemporary Japanese whilst respecting the 350 year old traditional house it has been built around. Wood and...

I was here back in September and meant to write about it then but forgot. I came here mainly for the architecture, by Kengo Kuma, one of the great designers in the world today, and found a wonderful building staffed by wonderful caring people. The exterior of the building has a simple elegance, but the real treat is inside: it's...

We live in Tokyo and went there for a 1-day trip from Tokyo by train (Yamagata shinkansen, 3.5 hours) and the view from the train was incredible (snow-covered fields and mountains). The hotel has a free shuttle service from the closest train station. The "village" is small but really beautiful, especially under the snow. The architecture by Kengo Kuma is...

When I first encountered the image of this ryokan on the architect's website, I was a little concerned that this modern hotel was sticking out like a sore thumb among the rest of ryokan from 1920-30's with the traditional design; however, in reality, it blended in beautifully and it simply appeared clean and refreshing. Like many, this ryokan did not...

First-rate architectural design and very relaxing secluded atmosphere. Staff is friendly but somehow there does not seem to be a true okami holding the place together. Food was sometimes good and sometimes not so good, including abalone and meat so though it was not edible. Very overpriced for what was offered. The town's attractions can be seen in less than...

We stayed at Fujiya in Ginzan for two nights and the following are my comments: The okami (Manager) of this ryokan was a US lady from California, but when we arrived the staff stated she was on travel to California, but after talking to many people we have discovered she as left Japan and will not return to Fujiya, not...

“I stayed in the smallest, cheapest, room, which did not have its own bath, but was on the front on the third floor and perfectly adequate for me. Futon on the floor, instead of a platform bed like some of the larger rooms, but for one person, or even two, it was more than fine.”
