[April, 2011] We stayed in Fujiya Hotel in Hakone, which has a long history since 1878.
The interior is made according to the image of Western for Japanese people in those days and it is used as it is now, which is very interesting.
The posh atmosphere is a part of their tradition, I suppose.
There were photos of Japanese and foreign royal families visiting this hotel.
By the way, we had a fairly strong earthquake during the night there, which was a bit scary.
This is a more than 100 years old building and it cannot have the earthquake-proof construction…
