Fujiya Ryokan

433 Shinpata, Obanazawa, Yamagata-ken, 994-4333, Japan

Modern luxury permeates Fujiya Ryokan, which has the ambience of an art gallery. Designed by architect Kuma Kengo, the immaculate guest rooms are equipped with state-of-art amenities, and two come with their own bathtubs. The five exquisite hot spring pools made from different natural materials such as granite, bamboo, and Japanese cypress provide total relaxation; each is available to all guests for private use only (¥2,000 per hour). Because the inn does not have dining facilities, you'll receive two substantial yet sublime Japanese meals served in your room. Obanazawa is 19 km (approximately 13 minutes via bullet train) from the center of Yamagata.
