We stayed here for 2 nights. Though a little pricey it was worth it. The service was exceptional. Even though the staff don't speak English they did all they could to make us feel welcome and comfortable. The view from our room was breath taking with Mt Fuji and the lake. And we loved the onsen on the top floor.... More

We spent three nights here and loved every minute of it. Yes checkin is a bit difficult as no one seems to speak much English but you soon work it out and know what's going on. The hotel is right on the lake with all rooms and the restaurant having superb views of Mt Fuji. The hotel is 5 minutes... More

We used our two night stay at Kukuna as a bit of a recuperation break after touring the south but before we hit the craziness of Tokyo. On our arrival we were greeted by one of Kukuna's most friendliest, cheeriest and possibly the best English speaking staff member, so we were off to a good start. We booked the Japanese... More

It is a very nice hotel. The location is located in one of the best spot to see Mt. Fuji. Stay at ryokan with a good view to the lake and Mt. Fuji was a very interesting experience. Enjoying onzen which also has a good view to Mt Fuji was also a great moment.

After checked out on time as hotel's policy, we started our day trip until 4pm and left luggage at hotel. When we came back hotel and waited for other members to leave, need around 1 hour. Hotel...

Kukuna was not our first preference of hotel but because we booked late, this was the only available one amongst our choices. The room turned out to be excellent with a full view of Mount Fuji. Though it was a bit pricy, considering that cherry blossom had still not set in, we enjoyed our stay thoroughly. Staff did not speak... More
