We selected the Fujiya to try and experience an old fashioned Japanese hotel which has been host to some really well known guests. Unfortunately we landed up on the longest holiday weekend in 12 years and the place was overwhelmed. There were a lot of day trippers filling the restaurants and lobby, making it rather hard for the residents to... More

You have to take the Fujiya with a grain of salt and a taste for the eccentric. Nostalgia for the 20th century, doesn't hurt, either. It's the kind of place that helps you to imagine how the upper class was managing in Japan while the Crawleys over at Downton were gently, slowly losing their economic footing. The Fujiya has an...

This hotel really needs updating. Even if you appreciate the historical point of view and the old-timey luxury hinted at by the crumbling, creaking staircases and wizened halls, the hotel still suffers as a current attraction. The staff was courteous enough. The location is pretty great as well. But hakone has lots of other better choices now in this century...

This property has a long history entertaining many celebrities and dignitaries from around the world. More famous Japanese people stayed early on as they didn't welcome foreigners in the beginning. Times have changed but the charm of the hotel and the ambiance has not. You are treated like royalty from the moment you step onto their property. Everything is first... More

John Lennon, Charlie Chaplin, the crown heads of Europe and even the Emperor of Japan have stayed here. But that some time ago. The hotel seems stuck in the late 30s with room decor to match. This was the first western style hotel in Japan and remains an institution in Hakone. If you enjoy historic hotels you will love this... More

The Fujiya Hotel is a great place to stay in Hakone-Machi. It exudes history and charm. It is a well kept but old hotel that might not have all the modern amenities that a new hotel would have, but it makes up for it in uniqueness and history. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed our Thanksgiving dinner... More

We stayed for 3 days on on trip in August 2013. The area is considered somewhat country. You take the bullet train to the base of the mountain then an old electric train that does switchbacks up the mountain. Don't go in the summer. The train ac was not great and it's HUMID! The hotel is very very old so... More

We did not stay, but we arrived without a reservation for lunch, mid week at peak Autumn leaf viewing season. From the moment we asked where to park our car, to the moment we were carefully ushered out of the car park at a difficult junction, we were treated as first class guests. The restaurant has a ticket waiting system... More

I was in the old building and had the bedroom next to Charlie Chaplins room. No lift in this section so a few stairs to negotiate. Very dated - really could do with updating and redecorating but the dining room was a joy to behold - so much character. The gardens and koi pond were also lovely. Unfortunately quite a... More

We stayed here recently for 2 nights as part of our 2 week honeymoon in Japan. Based on previous reviews, we were expecting to see a hotel in need of some updating - however the history of the hotel and the fact that it is one of the oldest in Japan was enough to make us want to stay. On... More
