We stayed at Fujioto for one night, and it was the highlight of our trip. Our room was very authentic, but spotlessly clean. Everything we needed was provided for us, and the dinner and breakfast was fantastic. Tsumago is a little out of the way to get to, but well worth the trip. Highly recommended!

Lovely stay in Tsumago

We had an outstanding time at Fujioto Ryokan! We not only found our stay very comfortable, but also very enlightening, particularly about traditional Japanese culture and cuisine. Our room was wonderfully simple and the view was exquisite, and we enjoyed relaxing in our room drinking tea. The food was delicious and getting to try the local cuisine was a special experience, especially as it was all explained to us. Franco and the staff were always very courteous and we felt right at home (especially as we don\'t speak much Japanese!) We only stayed for one night, but wish we stayed longer. We can\'t wait to visit again!

What a wonderful surprise to arrive at Fujioto and have the proprietor, Fujihara-san, waiting to greet us. He whisked us upstairs to the Hinoki, special guest room, a most generous upgrade! The American and Italian ambassadors have both stayed in this spacious room. We arrived a bit later than the requested 5pm check in due to a longer than expected drive, but Fujihara-san was very gracious. An exquisite dinner was served in the dining room. Mrs. Fujihara is the chef, and especially renowned for her tempura, which was light and greaseless. The meal included many local delicacies: trout, mountain vegetables, beef and larval wasps! Each course was introduced and explained by Fujihara-san. We fell asleep to the sound of water running through the rice fields and frogs singing in the night. A stay here is highly recommended.

Stayed here for a night. The advantage of this ryokan is the location. From the bus stop, it is just a 2 minute walk, unfortunately, the name of the ryokan is in Kanji. We were given the best view room on the 2nd floor, facing the garden. However, we find it troublesome each time we need to use the washroom which is located on the 1st floor. Especially in the night, it was so cold when we walked along the corridor. During dinner time, staff explained what we are eating and which item should be first eaten. Dessert was served after the dinner, coffee pudding and green tea chiffon which we enjoyed. Photograph was given as a gift on departure. From our experience, this ryokan lacks the warm and friendliness of most ryokan that we had stayed. Tsumago itself is pretty a small town and peaceful after the tourists left for the day.

A True Gem of our time in Japan

We had walked the trail from Magome in the rain and bumped into Franco right outside the Ryokan. We had pre-booked and he welcomed us in to his fabulous guesthouse. What a great place to stay, he had given us one of the best and largest rooms overlooking the gardens at the front with a small balcony to sit on with my beer later. My wife and I used the bath/hot-tub to warm up , it was heavenly after a damp walk. He was a wonderful host with great food , both dinner and an earlier prepared breakfast as we needed to leave fairly early.Service was in good english and both he and his wife contributed to one of the best overnight stays we had in our 15 days in Japan. I cannot say enough good things about this place, just wish we had booked 2 nights to spend more time in the village as it brightened up as we departed. This Ryokan is about NO.1 in the village and has mostly foreigners stay there, even though it normally amounts to maybe 12-15 on average.. Just book it and go there, it was Awesome..Thanks Franco...

A great introduction to ryokans

Excellent stay, we struggled to find it as there was no romanji on the sign but once we were in the staff were so accommodating. The food was an experience, we ate some things I didn\'t even know were edible and they were really nice. Personally I am not a huge fan of sleeping on tatami mats and it was fairly cold when we visited however that is nothing that Fujioto could do anything about!! Great location for hiking to Magome from, I wish we had planned to spend more time here, we ended up in a big rush to try get to our next destination after spending too much time in all the great museums that surround the Ryokan before our hike. Take plenty of food and drink with you if you do the hike, we assumed there would be some kind of shop or vending machine along the way but the only one we found was out of order - thankfully the tea house half way along kept us going, just!

amazing, romantic, great food

This is an amazing Ryokan, very friendly staff, it is great to find hot tea and cooking coming in everyday.. I would recommend it. The only negative thing I can say is that the pillows are too hard, oh well. Tsumago is beautiful!
