Spend a night with my wife in this hotel in early December. Check-in is smooth and hotel staffs are friendly. The Senninburo is open from December to February each year and the experience is fantastic, which provides a good option other than the onsen in the hotel, which is just ordinary. The room that we have chosen is facing the... More

We were looking for a different experience, away from the city. This place is 3.5 hrs away from Osaka. 2 hrs via train & 1.5 hrs via local bus. River onsen (Senin Buro) was the main draw during the winter period. However, as we were there at the start of winter, the river onsen was not warm enough for dipping... More

This is a friendly family run ryokan with great onsens. The ryokan is situated right next to the river which has the hot spring running through it. The rooms are large and the beds were the best we had in our Japan trip - but note that we had booked a modern room so I am not sure what the... More

Food and location are excellent. Rooms are comfortable with a lovely view. Hotel baths were very nice. Meals were consistently served late, which wasn't a problem, just noting it here. I would have rated the hotel higher if I had not been greeted by a large roach on our room door one evening...

The rooms face the river and the hills. The ryokan provides a great choice of onsen: indoors, outdoors and private, all great. Not to be missed: the bath in the pools digged in the river. This is a very pleasant alternative to the traditional onsen, since you have a nice view and you are in a totally natural environment. Food... More

We stayed in Fujiya / Fuzijya two nights and really enjoyed the place. Our first impression was quite negative as we arrived two hours before the room was ready; all lights were off in the reception area and we were only received by a terrified portier who did not speak much English. However, the impression improved vastly when we cambe... More

We spent a night here whilst travelling through the region and decided to splurge on Ryokan Fujiya. It IS rather expensive, but we found that it was money well spent. The rooms were large, comfortable and very clean. The onsen were top notch. The outdoor onsen has got to be our favourite. Alternatively, you could just amble down to the... More

My wife and I stayed here for a few days and LOVED it. We splashed out on a room which came with a private onsen bath on the balcony and private dinner and breakfast everynight. All of the other guests were Japanese, and little English was spoken. The dinners were INCREDIBLE - many many really interesting courses, always absolutely beautifully... More

I wonder the name should be Fuziya but not Fujiya!!! I love this resort anyway! (1) Very delicious dinner and breakfast! Value for money ^^ (2) In rainy days, you may stay in their private indoor/outdoor Onsens but there are still option to go to the outdoor public Onsens, so in sum you get 4 different types of Onsen to...
