Established as an inn at the beginning of the Edo period in front of the gate of Zenkoji Temple (Nagano), Fujiya was the lodging house of several feudal lords such as Kaga and was used as a "Gohonjin (an inn catering to high ranking government officials) " during that time. Afterwards, Fujiya came to be loved by many well known people and now, THE FUJIYA GOHONJIN is thriving as both a restaurant and venue to hold wedding events. "Monzen Yoshoku Fujiya" is its branch restaurant.
We offer unique Monzen Yoshoku dishes, which are a harmonious blend of Japanese and western cuisine, succeeded from THE FUJIYA GOHONJIN.
In addition, the fireplace and the kamado stove make you feel welcome in our restaurant with its heart-warming atmosphere.
Based on the concept of blending “TRADITION & MODERNITY”, we have been pursuing the idea that a “feast” is more than just “delicious food.”
Please enjoy our Yoshoku specialties, which are inspired by tradition and enhanced by modernity.
There is a gentle uphill slope which starts in the heart of Nagano City.
As you walk along the street flanked by merchant establishments, it changes to a beautiful granite pavement which leads the way to Zenkoji, the region’s most famous temple and the reason Nagano is regarded as a traditional temple town.
THE FUJIYA GOHONJIN is cherished as a historic local landmark here in the town of Daimon Cho, with its distinctive thick white mortar-walled storehouses.
The establishment has evolved into other businesses, such as a restaurant, cafe and bar.
