Fukudaya was such a beautiful, warm introduction to the Japanese countryside and to true Japanese culture, cuisine, and relaxation. For me as a westerner with relatively no prior experience in Japan, not really knowing what to expect, I can't imagine having a more enjoyable time than I did. The small inn is situated across a small river, and the only... More

We were warmly welcomed by the staffs upon arrival. The surrounding of the ryokan is so quiet, peaceful and beautiful as well. The room is tidy and clean. During our visit, we were told that there is a new program going on in the ryokan which is the 'kimono experience'. One special thing about the kimono is that it was... More

Fukudaya -- This gracious inn was one of the highlights of our trip. The inn has been beautifully maintained for over four generations and has kept all its traditional charm. It felt like we were experiencing Japanese culture at it’s best, just by relaxing with tea in our peaceful room above the river. The hot spring baths were exceptional (2... More

Fukudaya was excellent in every way. The food was delicious, the baths were beautiful and the staff were friendly and welcoming. The area surrounding Fukudaya was beautiful as well. The place is good for couples, with friends, and even with children. Place you must visit!

There is no place in the world that I could find more relaxing than this stunning retreat. With the lines of Kawabata's "Dancing Girl of Izu" ringing between every tree and babbling with the river, you can do no better than the Hotel Fukudaya to enjoy country side Tokyo.

I went here with my friends. This place is famous for Izu no Odoriko, a novel written about the area. I think a movie was made about the inn as well! The area was beautiful with hikes close by. The inn is very traditional and extremely comfortable. Our room was very scenic, with a river running right outside the window.... More

My girlfriend and her husband brought us here, they live in Japan and so we relied on them to pick a traditional Japanese onsen/inn and we're glad we came here. This place is known for the novel "The Izu dancer" and so it has history here. The hot springs (onsen) are indoors as well as outdoors (3 to choose from)... More

We were warmly welcome by the host and they offered us the best room overlooking the river which was really wonderful. Room that nobel prize winner Mr Yasunari Kawabata stayed before. Dinner and breakfast was excellent and the staffs there were very friendly. The hot springs were great too. We enjoyed the open air the most. Quiet and beautiful nature... More

Fukudaya has been run by the same family for generations and has the distinction of being the inn where the famous early 20th century author Kawabata wrote the novel "The Izu Dancer" (Izu no Odoriko) . It is located in the hot spring town of Kawazu off the main road right by a fast flowing river. The room where Kawabata... More

The ryokan Fukudaya was a really great place. The location is set across the river from the main roads, which means that it is quieter there. My room overlooked the river, which was great to sit out at night just listening to the water flowing by. It was exactly the type of relaxing environment I was looking for. From there,... More
