We have booked two nights at this ryokan and our primary reason was the nice view to mount Fuji. Since we were travelling with our 2 1/2 yrs daughter, we preferred to have a rotenburo (host spring bath tub outdoor attached to the room). Unfortunately it was cloudy and we did not see a bit of mount Fuji. Apparently views... More

I booked this hotel (with balcony) for the view of mount fuji and lake. However, when the room maid showed us the room I was quite disappointed that the right side of mount fuji is blocked by some trees (because the room is at the right side of the hotel). So I asked to change another room with a better... More

A very lovely hotel by the lake. It is very beautifully done in Japanese deco and a lot of Japanese culture here, including the onsen which is separate for men and women but offers gorgeous view whether you are soaking in the indoor spa or even better, the outdoor one. The changing room is very well equipped with shampoo and... More

This hotel is on the edge of an attractive lake overlooking Mt. Fuji. The hotel is very clean and well maintained although the decor is a little dated. The service was great with a free shuttle bus to and from the rail station. This is a traditional Japanese Inn type of hotel called a ryokanwhere dinner is served in your... More

We had an amazing 2-night stay here. The first couple of days Fuji was hazy but was perfect the morning we left. All of the rooms face Fuji and the lake so you can see the ever changing views of Fuji from the room, the onsen or the dining room. The service was wonderful. We requested a non-seafood meal for...

Firstly, you cannot beat this hotels view of Mt Fuji! It is perfect and spectacular, no other hotel on this lake has such a perfect, unobstructed view. The Onsen is divine, with the changing room full of gorgeous Japanese lotions and potions for beautifying after bathing. The indoor Onsen is great, but the real beauty is in the outdoor pool,...

Kogetsu is a 10min drive from Kawaguchiko station and one of the furthest hotels from the town and other attractions. But as you would have probably read from the other reviews, what you get in return is the ideal location from which to see the pride of Japan, Mt Fuji. Kogetsu sits on the north of Lake Kawaguchi and from... More

I do recommend this hotel is awesome having a great scenery and service. I do love outdoor Onsen that make me relax and relieve from long journey. I do not hesitate to choose this hotel again for my Japan trip next time. You should try to stay in this hotel once.

I stayed at his hotel with my husband for one night during a recent trip to Japan, our first. It was a great choice! They picked us up at the train station (we just called once we got there) and there was also transportation when we left. When we got to our room, a woman came up and arranged tea... More

The hotel has extraordinary view of Fujiyama. Their service is great also. My wife and I arrived hotel after their check-in time. But their staff still serve delicious Japanese cuisine for us. In this hotel, they treat customer as their family. Also, the hot spring is clean and nice, also has extraordinary view of Fujiyama. You also can go outdoor... More
