0.77km from Shiki Main StoreOn the edge of Lake Kawaguchi with fantastic views of Mt Fuji and the lake, it is a perfect location to enjoy the ever changing view of the mountain. When we stayed there we had perfect blue cloudless skies giving us perfect photos of Mt Fuji in all her majesty, then just a few hours later she was completely covered by cloud. On waking the next morning there she was again glistening in the morning sunlight, snow covered and quite magical. The hotel is fresh and clean, but perhaps a little dated looking. We chose a room in the traditional ryukan style, although there are western style rooms available as well. It was very spacious and had everything we needed including hot water to make green tea and little biscuits shaped like Mt Fuji :). The foyer and meals areas are more western in style. It is a good mix of modern and traditional. The hotel provides a free shuttle service at certain hours to and from Kawaguchi railway station and bus station which are side by side in the town. However if you don't have much luggage it is a pleasant 20-30 minute stroll around the lake edge if you feel like doing that. It is certainly lovely to walk around parts of the lake once you have settled in. We chose to include the dinner and breakfast package in our booking, which proved to be very convenient as there aren't many restaurants nearby and when we were there in March, the temp was about 2 degrees C in the evening. The meals were lovely, in the traditional style, very fresh and plentiful and really delicious. The staff were very attentive and courteous and very helpful in advising us about local cafes and attractions. Be warned that there are no shops nearby as the whole street is taken up with hotels, so if you'd like some snacks or liquor to enjoy in your room whilst looking out to the view we suggest you get it in the town, at the station before going to the hotel. They do have the ubiquitous vending machine on the 2nd floor, selling beer but if you don't like beer there is little else except for syrupy pop drinks. So, BYO goodies to your room. We would recommend this hotel as good for a night or two's stay as although not what you'd call exciting, it is more than adequate and quite nice.
