Fodor's Expert Review Fujiya Hotel

359 Miyanoshita, Hakone, Kanagawa-ken, 250-0522, Japan

Built in 1878, and renovated in 2020, this Western-style hotel with modern additions is showing signs of age, but that somehow adds to its charm. The Fujiya combines the best of traditional Western design with the exceptional service and hospitality of a fine Japanese inn. There are both Western and Japanese restaurants, and in the gardens behind the hotel is an old imperial villa that serves as a dining room. Hot-spring water is pumped right into the guest rooms.
