Fujiya began to study the piano at the age of four, going on to study at the Otani University in Sapporo, Japan, from which she graduated in 1999 and served as an assistant until 2002. In 2003 she moved to Italy where she studied with Oliver Kern at the Accademia Musicale Estenseat, and Bruno Mezzena at the Accademia Musicale Pescarese[1], graduating with the highest possible marks and an academic prize. Fujiya is married to the Italian clarinettist Sauro Berti.

For her Italian debut in 2005, Fujiya performed in Modena, under conductor Michele Mariotti.[2][3] She has subsequently performed numerous concerts in Italy, Switzerland, Germany, the United States, Costa Rica, Colombia, Lebanon, England, Spain and Japan.
