My boyfriend and I have just spent one night here after four days in Tokyo as part of our travels around Japan and this hotel was exactly what we needed after the non stop action of Tokyo. We stayed in room 806 which had an open air bath and Mount Fuji view. Although we were unable to see Mount Fuji... More

This was my first time staying at an onsen and it was a really unique experience. The staff go out of their way to make you comfortable and, contrary to what others have stated, they do speak some basic English. The positive- amazing food! Our kaiseki was beautifully presented and very filling. An explanation of the dishes would have been... More

The hotel has fantastic views of the lake and mt fuji. We stayed in a room with lake view. Be prepared the traditional Japanese style room is exactly what it says on the tin as is the hotel. There are futon beds, low chairs and no shoes allowed in the room. I would advise staying here for no longer than... More

After staying in a very high-class ryokan in hakone, I would say that this hotel a total disappointment with terrible CP value. This is a hotel for group travelers. The lady that services our room seems exhausted. The food was also mediocre as it was made in large quantity. Hot spring no good. There is no towel provided in the... More

The hotel includes a pick up service from kawaguchiko station - we called when we arrived at the station and within 5 mins a man was here to pick us up. He helped us with our luggage was very polite. We got to our room- it huge and very clean. A traditional japanese style room. The lady was great -... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights and it was a great introduction to a ryokan. The onsen facilities are nice and being able to sit outside was great. The roof area with the view of Mt. Fuji was fantastic. It was a nice downhill walk from the station and we were grateful of the lift back in the... More

My husband and son wanted to climb Mt. Fuji. I didn't. We hoped that the Konansou would be the perfect (if rather expensive) solution: Three nights for me, two nights for them, at an elegant and comfortable ryokan on a beautiful lake with easy access to Mt. Fuji and lots to explore locally. Beautiful lake? Check. Easy access to Mt.... More

We managed to squeeze in a one-night stay at Konansou during our Tokyo trip last year and it was the BEST thing we have ever done. Prior to booking a stay at this hotel, we had been researching several lodging and we still found the Konansou offers the best view of the majestic Mt Fuji as well as magnificent Lake... More
