We were so happy to choose this hotel for our Fuji trip. First up, it has unrivalled views of Fuji, across the forests and closer than any other hotel in the area, plus every room has a view and a balcony, the photos I have attached were taken from our balcony. We chose the room for 3 people which consisted of 2 good sized rooms each with 2 extra large single beds; a good bathroom, bar fridge, dining table and 4 chairs. We loved the fact that we were the only Australians in the hotel, especially after a week’s skiing in Nozawa where it seemed that EVERYONE was an Aussie. The hotel buffet breakfast was first class, the service was faultless with fabulous attention to detail. The onsen was really good and well equipped with towels, shampoo, moisturisers, hair-dryers... all very impressive. It’s not in the touristy lakeside area, but we loved all the surrounding restaurants and the shopping centre across the road. For a hotel that is definitely not in the top level price range, it ticked all our boxes and we are pretty fussy.
