Ginzan Hot Spring isn't a big place and has limited inns and hotels. Same for Fujiya Inn, the place has selected guest rooms only to ensure the service quality (I guess they have total 20 rooms or less?), so I recommend to book well in advance, especially around the Japanese Holiday season (search on web for Japanese National holidays). When we stayed at Fujiya Inn, we had the last room available, and we booked 2~3 weeks in advance.
There are many English websites, serch for "Ginzan Onsen Travel Guide" or "Japan guide com"
