Long time ago there were no amusements except for the baths in Japan. Hot spring was rare and regarded dream spot. Many heroes went to this onsen. We can feel traditional cool Japan as we go to this local spot.

I stayed in this hotel for three nights in April. We chose a western style room with private onsen which costed around US$1000 per night. Room is nice with view over the natural onsen. good enough. but the food is just soso, especially at this price range. I have stayed in other onsen hotel in other areas of japan, rooms... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Fujiya hotel in a ‘Kumano Modern’ twin with Private Hot Spring Bath and bathroom. The views of the Oto River and the mountains from our room were beautiful, peaceful and relaxing. The room décor was simple and very clean. Our stay included traditional kaiseki dinner and breakfast served in a private guestroom. There... More

The ryokan overlooks the Kawayu river which sprouts hot springs when you dig into the river bed. That's the novelty of this place. We took the traditional ryokan room (if you stay in a ryokan, you must experience the traditional style rooms) which was spacious and pleasant with a wonderful balcony view. The ryokan itself has indoor and nice outdoor... More

The little village where the hotel is located is quite remote from the big touristy stuff and offers good opportunities for hikes and relax along a beautiful stream. The hotel has large Japanese style rooms which are very comfortable and where you also get served a great local dinner. The outdoor Onsen is great and convenient . When we were... More

We stayed in a lovely Deluxe Twin Room with a private open-air two-person onsen on the balcony, one of three western-style rooms in the 31-room hotel. The room was a generous 50 sq metre, with dark wooden floors. Modern amenities in a historic accommodation. The hotel has been operated by the same family for 13 generations. Free parking and free...

Well, where do I start? Check in was smooth after booking through Bookings.com - easy compared to the challenges we have had with Japanese hotel websites in english in the past (this is our 7th personal visit to Japan).. We were provided with an english list of instructions and guidelines as the most experienced english speaker was not on shift.... More

We spent three nights at Fujiya. It was the ryokan experience we had dreamed of. First class service, a spacious Japanese room and food made in heaven. The fish dinner that was delivered to our room was so overly decadent and delicious, we don't expect to have anything comparable in the future. The outside river onsen is fun. You can... More

We stayed at this Ryokan as a part of a hiking group walking the Kumano Kodo and the one night stay was wonderful. We arrived by local bus to find the staff waiting to greet us and usher us into the lobby, rooms were ready and soon we were all in our spacious rooms overlooking a river. The rooms we... More

We were with a National Geographic tour in October when we stayed here. The next day, miles away, we realized that we had left our cell phone at Fujiya. Our tour guide called Fujiya and that night, a Fujiya employee hand-delivered our phone to us at another inn, that even required a ferry ride to get to. He saved our... More
