Furuya Ryokan

 

 

If you are looking for authentic ryokans in Atami, I would highly recommend it.  Perhaps, if you expect a 5-star ryokan service, this is one of the best in Japan.  On the other hand, if you are looking for modern ryokans, this is not.  There wouldn’t be western elements here.  The ambience is relaxed, serene, and elegant.  The property would be great for family, big groups, or couples.  Also this is child-friendly.  Staff can provide baby bouncers, baby baths, and microwaves for baby meals, etc., if you request in advance.  If you are going to stay here, I would highly recommend booking a room with an outdoor private hot spring.  It’s truly worth it.  The room is spacious, functional and Japan minimalistic.  Facilities tend to be the latest.  The housekeeping was excellent.  The property has a long history, though.  Staff can arrange a Japanese-style table and chairs in your room if you request.  Refer to the above photo.  Also there is no nice view from the property as it is located in the town.  Then all of the amenities are taken care of including minimum toiletries, yukatas, and a green tea set etc.  A humidifier and DVD player were placed in our room.  Room service is available from 7:00-11:00, 14:00-20:00.  Complimentary coffee is available at the lobby.  A convenience store is nearby.  There is a vending machine for Häagen-Dazs ice cream in the building.  Wifi reception is good and a PC is placed at the lobby for use someone.  There is no bar, lounge or library on-site.  Then the property is not universal design but there are few steps in-house.  Wheelchair is available for borrowing.  There are lifts.  If you bring people with weak feet, you may want to inform staff in advance as they can arrange a room near the lift.  Then there is no western bed on tatami rooms so they can provide folding beds if you request.  Then there are some public hot springs in-house.  They are open from 14:00-10:00 the following morning.  The spring quality is amazing.  It’s soft, thick and moist.  Once you try it, you may become a hot spring freak.  This is one of the best in Atami.  *If you have tattoos, you may not be permitted to use the public bathing area.   Then authentic kaiseki food experience for dinner and breakfast was just divine.  If you are gourmet, you should try it.  It may be bit challenging for western palate but it’s worth trying it.  The ingredients were very high-end including abalone, beef, foie gras, and fish, etc., and beautiful presentation.  Also they have a nice Japanese sake list to complement the meals.  The portion tends to be average.  After dinner, staff provided some rice balls for a night snack in our room.  All meals are served in your room or a dining area.   *Please note that inform staff when you book a room with meals if you have any food allergies or dietary needsThey probably wouldn’t be able to prepare alternative food if you request on that day.  Dinner starts from 19:30.  Breakfast starts from 7:30.  Alternatively you can go out for meals as there are many local restaurants around Atami Station.  Then their hospitality would be top notch.  If you want to experience signature Japanese hospitality with personal touch, you should stay here.  The staff and everyone there is so welcoming and helpful, however be mindful and respectful of the Japanese traditions here as it’s a very traditional ryokan.  At last, free shuttle bus is not available.  It takes just 5min by Taxi *700JPY from Atami station.  Alternatively it takes 15min on foot.  Have a nice trip!  Welcome to receive any questions about the property from the below space.  All information is as of the date that I posted on my blog.   **Check in and out times 2:30PM/11:00AM   You need to check in by 19:00Check Availability and Pricing for the ryokan on Booking.com or Agoda
