Simply put, stay here - you won't regret it! Great location to hike the Nakasendo trail, it has its own Japanese baths, lovely tranquil small gardens and some of the best food you'll have. I'd recommend this ryokan to anyone. There is an 8 course tasting menu dinner and fantastic tapas type breakfast too. They also kindly sprayed all of... More

Ryokan's can seem like an expensive option for sleeping on a floor mattress and sharing toilets/ bathrooms etc but here is the rub. Anywhere else in the world you'd pay just the evening meal price for dining out- let along the accomodation plus breakfast. And at Fujioto it's a brilliant 8 course meal that awaits you every evening. Fresh,tasty,wholesome food... More

Arriving hot and sweaty from our trek from Magome, we were shown our room- the largest they had with views out onto both the gorgeous front garden and street and the pretty back garden. The ryokan was charming and the host was so lovely and friendly. We indulged in the wonderful wooden hot tub (big tip - get there earlier... More

We highly recommend Fujioto to anyone visiting Japan. It's been an amazing experience and the best hotel experience of the trip. We expected the ryokan to be really good based on the reviews here and I have to say it exceeded our expectations! Since we stepped in Franco and the rest of the staff made us feel very especial and... More

After trekking from Magome we arrived hot & tired at Tsumago & were warmly greeted by management & staff who showed us to our room & explained everything about the Ryokan. All staff we encountered spoke English plus Italian, Spanish & I think, German. Had a soothing hot bath in the wooden tub before an aperitif overlooking the garden.Dinner is... More

Our experience at Fujioto was unforgettable. Franco, his wife (the chef), and their staff were so kind and hospitable. The ryokan is beautiful and in a picturesque setting. The room and futons were clean and comfortable, and with two hot baths there wasn't much of a wait to use them in the morning. The meals were gorgeous and delicious. Franco... More

This inn, or Ryokan is conveniently located on the main street in the village of Tsumago. We had the best suite in the house. Our room overlooked the fish pond and garden in front, and a view of the little town. The food is wonderful and very unique. We tried many local dishes. The staff is very friendly and helpful....

The stay in Ryokan Fujioto and the walk from Magome to Tsumago was one of the highlights of our family trip to Japan. I made a last-minute reservation just two days before arrival and was able to book a room for my family of 3. The staff were very helpful in making the reservation and giving advice on transportation for... More

This was our first traditional Japanese stay/food experience and I want to thank Franco and everyone at Fujioto for the most exceptional stay! I won’t be able to say enough good things. From the moment we arrived Franco explained the shoes off and showed us around and to our room’s. We put on the Yukata’s for dinner and feasted. Franco... More

As in April 2015, we were again fully enjoyed the walk from Magome to Tsumago on June 3, 2016, and the crown was again the extraordinary stay in Fujioto Ryokan. This was for our family the second time we stayed in Tsumago with Keiko and Franco, Sayaka and Mayu, plus the entire staff, they are all simply outstanding. Keiko's dinners... More
