Fujiyoshida sits on the outskirt of Mount Fuji, and offers a great place to spend the night after a day at nearby theme park Fuji-Q Highland.
Hostel Saruya is one of a few accommodation options in the small town, but it puts in a big effort to stand out. It’s a stylish place in an understated way, with great attention to detail throughout.
Guestrooms are in a building set back from the street, so there is no noise from traffic. It’s an incredibly cozy, two-story place with three rooms and a communal kitchen, plus a shower and toilet.
The rooms are traditional tatami mat-style with mattresses that roll out on the floor, so don’t expect a Western-style bed. Breakfast is included in your room rate, and the matcha granola was incredibly tasty.
The staff speak English and were incredibly helpful in planning onward journeys, as well as finding somewhere to eat in town. I would highly recommend Saruya as an affordable place to stay the night, but the town is probably too small to warrant a longer stay. Expect to pay around $40 per night for a double room, a great price in Japan.
