Fujiya Ryokan

Kawayu Onsen (Hongu) Ryokan

Fujiya Ryokan is one of the largest accommodations in Kawayu Onsen and is located at the east end of the village.  All but three of the rooms are traditional Japanese style.  The other three are modern western theme rooms based on earth, bamboo and wood respectively, all with private baths on the balcony.  All rooms have a view of the Oto River which flows through the village.  The décor is traditional Japanese with Ikebana and other art throughout the facility.  Hot spring water bubbles to the river surface in front of the hotel.
