Fujiya Hotel Miyanoshita
Fujiya Hotel Miyanoshita, Hakone & Mount Fuji, Japan
The first Western style hotel in all Japan, the Fujiya was originally built for foreign travellers at the end of the nineteenth century. It is made up of several different buildings all constructed at various times since 1878 up until the 1960s. Parts of the hotel have even been designated as a cultural asset by the Japanese government and to this end rooms are large and comfortable (twin beds only) with classic teak furnishings and quirky design. The hotel has indoor and outdoor pools, hot spring bathing facilities, several restaurants, a famous tea lounge and even more famous Japanese curry. There is even a museum dedicated to the hotel's history. The previous manager of the hotel was American and has translated information about the hotel and the surrounding area into English, so please do ask for it on arrival. The hotel is well located in Miyanoshita and central to the sightseeing loop.
