Closed San Antonio restaurant Fujiya is auctioning off equipment, furniture

As if it wasn’t real enough for you, Fujiya is now auctioning off its kitchen equipment and decorations that gave the restaurant its character. Yes, that includes the decorative origami. 

Fujiya, which permanently closed some time in July, is now auctioning off the commercial-grade kitchen equipment like vent hood, griddle, stove and charbroiler through a website called Auction Nation. 

The auctioneer, listed as Local Liquidators, appears to be selling off everything from the bathroom fixtures to the decorative origami hanging from the ceiling. 

There has already been bids on items as of Friday afternoon with highest being $360 for a meat tenderizer.


If you’ve been to Fujiya in the past then you know that’s a pretty iconic feature to the restaurant. 

“What about the pond?” you ask. Yes. They’re even selling the stone pond that sat inside the restaurant. 

Fujiya closed for renovations in 2019 and never reopened. In July, fans of the local Japanese restaurant took to social media, posting photos of a letter on the door of the restaurant saying it was permanently closed. Messages to ownership went unanswered. 

People were left with questions as to why it closed. They had no real answer, at least none that were made public.

Joan Momohira Wester first opened Fujiya in San Antonio’s Deco District in 1970, and then moved over to Wurzbach Road in 1996. Wester was killed in 1998 when her vehicle was struck by a wrong-way driver.
