Most luxury hotels either meet up to your expectations, or they fall short. It is rare to find a place with such high ratings and reviews, and yet still be able to SURPASS your expectations when you are there! Kozantei Ubuya is such a place. They had a manager who spoke great English, and they even did a pickup from... More

This was the second stop for our honeymoon and we really wanted to splash out and relax for the weekend (3 days, 2 nights). We are SO glad that Kozantei Ubuya did not disappoint. We checked in at about 1pm and the room was not ready yet, which was fine so we went for lunch first and by the time... More

Everything about this establishment was first class. From the personal check in with green tea to the phenomenal dining experience to the private Japanese bath on our balcony with breathtaking views of Mt Fuji. This is a night we will never forget. Magical!!

We moved here after staying for 2 days else where in Kawaguchiko. Having gone touring around the other lakes during the day, our local guides dropped us off at Kozantei at around 5 pm. Staff attentiveness is very high. Immediately upon getting off the vehicle we were greeted by the staff who saw to the bags and patiently helped us... More

We came back to this wonderful ryokan as we enjoyed the view and service. The last time we were here was April 2013. We had the same room (302) which was both a western and Japanese combined room. This is the best inn at lake kawaguichi. The dinner offering was good and guests are given 2 standard choices of either... More

Everything about this hotel is Japanese. We had a great stay in there, and we were lucky with the weather as the morning we were checking out we got a magnificent view of Mt. Fuji. The views from the rooms are stunning. We were in the standard room, which is a traditional japanese one. Very spacious for Japanese standards. We... More

Kozantei Ubuya is easily the most wonderful place I've stayed in Japan. Of course, so much of it has to do with the amazing location on the lake with that amazing view of Fuji. We were lucky enough to have perfectly clear winter days so that you could see every detail of Fuji even the sought-after reflection in the lake.... More

This place is not a hotel, it is an experience. From the service, to the traditional Japanese rooms (you can ask for tatami with futons or western beds) fully equipped with yukata pyjamas and socks, Japanese toiletries and Japanese refreshments, to the outside private onsens where you can gaze at Mt Fuji from your hot tub, to the massage chairs...

Kozantei Ubuya is on the lake side at Kawaguchiko, one of the Fuji Five Lakes, with a view of the famous volcano from the shore and from each of the bedroom windows. The hotel is nicely furnished and is well run, with very polite service. Most of the rooms are tatami with futons laid out at night for sleeping. Food... More
