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 is a fantastic public natural hot spring/ “open air bath” in front of the hotel. Using the “open air bath” is very easy as the hotel keeps plastic flip flops and vinyl bags near the front desk. No need to feel intimidated if this is your first time at an onsen – the hotel provides a detailed information sheet (in English) on what you need to do. Getting to Fujiya Ryokan is simple, the bus from the Tananbe City Kumano Tourist Info Center to Kawayu Onsen stops directly in front of the hotel (Ride is approx. 1.5 hours).
Staying at Fujiya Ryokan was a very special and unique experience – it is a must do when you are visiting Japan!More
