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

Price is on the high side, but its definitely worth every bit of money spent. Kaiseiki style dinner and even breakfast was a full spread. You have a perfect view of Mt Fuji from inside your room, through the huge window available.

I stayed here for only one night after a few days in Kawaguchiko. I paid for the most expensive option which is the suite with the private bath. I believe there are only 2-3 suites, and while it is expensive it is worth the splurge. After all, dinner and breakfast are included for two pax and these meals are expensive... More

I thought this place could be the best place to see Kawaguchiko with Fujisan in background . Very nice onsen and service.Even a little bit pricy but you can expect what you'll get. Nice food both dinner and breakfast. Many facilities for you.

This hotel is wonderful. It is a traditional Japanese hotel that has direct views of lake Kawaguchiko and on the other side of the lake is Mount Fuji. The rooms are traditional and your bed is made in the evening using tatami mats. The spa is first class. If you are American, like me, the public bath and spa (men... More
