The Fujioto is a 100-year-old, family-run ryokan in the centre of the village of Tsumago, housed in a beautiful traditional building and surrounded by a meticulously maintained Japanese garden. Meals are the real highlight of a stay here: hearty, home-cooked cuisine featuring local, seasonal produce. The owner's are a real delight and go out of their way to make you feel part of the family, offering lots of advice about walking and sightseeing in the Kiso valley: the route along the old samurai trail from the neighbouring village of Magome through Tsumago and on to Nagiso is highly recommended. Rooms are all quite simple and traditional in style, and bathroom facilities are shared.
Features: 9 guestrooms, onsen (hot spring bath) for private use, dining room.
Room amenities: Television, tatami mat floors, futon bed, traditional green tea.
