The space
The hostel
Saruya Hostel opened in 2015 in Fujiyoshida, a city at the bottom of Mt Fuji. We renovated an 80 years old wooden house to create a place that allows our guests to experience time and space through carefully selected art, design and objects, mixing traditional Japanese inspiration with modern aesthetics.

Shared facilities
Our shared bathrooms include shower rooms and sink areas. The hostel will provide our guests with towels, body wash, shampoo as well as hair dryers and q-tips. We also sell eco-friendly bamboo toothbrushes.

Our shared kitchen is equipped with utensils, dishes, cookware as well as seasoning to prepare your meals. A community refrigerator, toaster and rice cooker are also available.
We also offer complimentary coffee and tea.

Working Space
We have a couple of desks with outlets available to people who need to work at their laptop. Our fast internet and relaxed atmosphere make for a comfortable working environment.

Library & Lounge
Our library is stocked with Japanese and English books and magazines on art, design and lifestyle, as well as some comic books. You can enjoy a read sitting comfortably in our lounge area.

Coffee & Tea
Saruya offers, free of charge, coffee, green tea and herbal tea from local growers “MYHERBS”. MYHERBS is a young company who started growing herbs and producing their blends in the Yamanashi region. We are happy to offer custom blends created by Saruya and MYHERBS.

Saruya offers a breakfast option for 450yen.
Our gluten-free granola is home-made locally by Mayo Sweets Shop, it's composed of brown rice, nuts and raisins.
We serve it with soy milk for a dairy free treat!

Saruya Hostel collaborates with Tenjin Factory who has made linen products for a 100 years. Saruya uses their 100% linen high quality blanket covers and guests in twin rooms can also enjoy their towels.

Bike rental
For 500 yens per day you can use one of our bicycles which is a great way to discover our neighborhood and city, full of little gems. A ride around the Kawaguchi lake is highly recommended with plenty of interesting stops and treats along the way.
