My husband and I visited this ryokan 10 years ago, and it was wonderful then, but upgraded and even more wonderful now! The service is excellent, with friendly and attentive staff. The food is served in small, individual dining rooms. Very high quality ryokan meals with local, mountain cuisine. Both breakfast and dinner were excellent. The onsen is the main attraction, with separate men and women's bathing facilities with an outdoor rotembo, and spacious indoor pool, both at perfect temperatures! You need to go to Hirase Onsen, which about an hour drive from Takayama and about 25 minutes from Shirakawago. Well worth the stay, especially for couples needing a romantic getaway!

Room Tip: In a very quiet town with very little traffic noise from the main road. All rooms seem equally good.

Relatively close to Shirakawa but located in a village where there’s not much to do or particular charm.
Service is good, food is tasty, the onsen really nice, the rooms comfortable. You feel really transported into a parallel world of relaxation.

The ryokan is remotely located in a sleepy mountain town, which you're not visiting for the town itself, but rather for the serenity of the ryokan. Dinner was amazing, and private outdoor onsen makes for a very cozy afternoon/evening. Each room contains a small fire pit where guests can burn charcoal for added ambiance.

It takes about 90 minutes to reach Fujiya from Takayama, and 30 minutes from the world heritage site Shirakawa-Go, so I recommend spending the night at Fujiya as part of a side trip to Shirakawa-go from Takayama. Visit Shirakawa early in the day before heading off the Fujiya just in time for the 3PM check-in.

Room Tip: Ask about garden view with private onsen.

Service is beyond excellent, staff are friendly, welcoming and very professional. The 24/7 onsen area is fully equiped with everything you need for an unforgetable bathing experience. The outdoor, stone-based bath tub is perfect for relaxing, especially if you are having a backache or lots of muscular tensions. We were lucky enough to be bathing and having snow falling down upon our heads at the same time. Food is well-served and extremely healthy, although I would not recommend for big eaters. Highly recommended!!!

We came across Tosukenoyu Fujiya as we could not find any other ryokan that is nearer to Shirakawago. The ryokan is located in a quaint and quite small town about 15 to 20mins away from Shirakawago. First thing to note is that, if you are driving to the ryokan there is a huge sign to direct you towards the entrance which is off the main road. We blindly followed the gps and was brought to the side building of the ryokan.

As our trip was in February, the snow was very thick. We were served hot tea and some mochi dessert while we sat around the charcoal heater/fireplace. Definitely a huge plus. The ryokan was surrounded in snow and the quietness and peacefulness of the surrounding really gave the ryokan a very out of this world feel.

The food served at the ryokan was delicious and exquisitely plated. Our family enjoyed our dinner surrounding an irori, definitely one of the fond memories of the ryokan.

One of our rooms was the suite, there was a staircase that led up to the room with a wheelchair stair lift. The suite had a living room area with a kotatsu (wooden coffee table with heated futon), a sofa and a large tv. A pantry area with tea making facilities and mini fridge. There was a toilet but no showers. A room with a working Irori. We set up the irori and around with snacks and chatted through the night. Do note, though the charcoal does not give off much smoke, there is still a light charcoal smell given off. Do remember to close off the sliders to the sleeping area.

There is a private onsen for families that you can use for free. you just need to let the staff know the slot you want to reserve. There is also the usual same gender onsen which is a must try. So there really is no need for an in room shower. It was a relatively quiet season, there seemed to be only 2 or 3 other groups of guest which was great as it was not over crowded.

It is definitely not the cheapest ryokan to stay in, but for the quality of stay we thought it was worth it. We would definitely recommend Tosukenoyu Fujiya and would love to return given the chance.
