A very beautiful resort onsen. We had an onsen suite which meant we had our own private onsen. It was wonderful to use as the nights were chilly. Loved it! The staff was excellent and spoke great English, which was quite helpful since our Japanese is very basic! We would stay here again!
Location was convenient to train station and Fuji Q. Carpet was clean. Pleasant older men at the desk. The mattress was very uncomfortable. Our backs were aching terribly. The bathroom was from a cruise ship. Wall paper pealing off the walls and cracks visible. Floor lamp was very stained.
We stayed here after a two-day trek up Mt Fuji. Cool historic hotel reminded us of the lodges at Yellowstone. We wandered around parts of the property admiring old photos and decor. Up a fairly narrow staircase we found an alcove with large windows and a single rocking chair facing a grand view of Mt Fuji. The onsen also boasted some tremendous views and was a wholly relaxing experience.
