Amazing place, better service and the best views of Fujisan... After stay in this incredible ryokan, I have asked myself about what is expensive or what is not... Now, I'm really convinced about Ubuya is one of the most cheapest experiences I have had in my life. One of the most beautiful places you could ever been. No words. Rafa

Views were fantastic. Food was delightful. Room was wonderful. The hotel staff were very committed and would go all the way out to help their customers. We were amazed and grateful. It is the people who work in this hotel that make this hotel a completely perfect place to stay.

This is once in a life time experience one must try. It is expensive but for those who is curious about staying in a Japanese ryokan, this is a good start. We have had three previous experience in different ryokan but this is by far, the best. The hotel is situated on the opposite side of Mt Fuji which means... More

It is an excellent hotel located at the best location at Kawaguchiko lake. Mountain Fuji is sitting in front of the hotel at the far distance. The reflection of the Mountain Fuji can be seen from Kawaguchiko lake from the rooms windows. Even you can enjoy the beautiful views from the onsen baths. The hotel and the onsen baths are... More

Stayed here in April for two nights and had a wonderful time. The hotel must have one of the best views of Mount Fuji and I was able to take some magnificent photographs. Staff,room, food and onsen baths are all first class. The experience of staying at this hotel was worth every single penny.

Captivating view of Mt Fuji by the lake in the rooms, restaurants and the hotel's onsen! Excellent Japanese food and wine selection with very helpful and friendly service. Perhaps a good thing that wifi access is limited to the reading room only. Definitely coming back again.

We stayed one night at Kozantei Ubuya and it was total bliss. The rooms have panoramic windows which provided us a wonderful view of Lake Kawaguchiko ( sadly clouds and rain obstructed our view of Mt. Fuji). We selected the half board option which included dinner and breakfast which were both delicious. To top our evening off we took advantage... More

We stayed for two nights and loved every minute. Everything was perfect and we can't wait to return. Worth the high price for the service and food alone. We were even picked up from the end of our sightseeing trips by the hotel chauffeur.

It was an amazing experience with 湖山亭うぶや It is surely the best hotel in Kawaguchiko. When you arrived the station, the stuff of the information centre will help to call the hotel and then the shuttle comes. As you stepped into the Ryokan, the hotel stuff will guide to the sofa area and receptionist will help you check in with... More
