As you step into the grand entrance of Nippondaira Hotel, the wonderful view staring back at you is like a painting coming to life. The hotel is cleverly constructs a wide panel glass facing Mount Fuji to allow guests to enjoy a panoramic view of the city of Shimizu Port and part of the city. While its location is not... More

Great hotel, great staff. Outstanding view on Fujiyama and the Shizuoka bay. The only problem is that it is far (35 min) away from town and is very isolated. Other than that it's luxurious, very good breakfast, super clean, and excellent service. Free wifi (which works ok, not super speed)

Apart from the fact that the view from the hotel might be spectacular (it wasn't when we stayed there since the clouds prevented any view), the hotel itself is very nice: comfortable rooms, great restaurants and excellent service. The rooms on the Fuji side of the hotel are a lot more expensive and hard to identify on the website we... More

My young daughter and I first stayed at this hotel (in its old guise) in 2008 and were thoroughly impressed with the view over the gardens, Shimizu, and of Mt Fuji. The hotel was a little dated and I remarked to my Japanese friend, at the time, that it wasn't the best hotel I'd ever stayed at, but it certainly... More

Nippondaira is a large, new hotel on a mountain overlooking Shizuoka with great views of Mount Fuji. The views are framed by an expansive meadow, bordered by dense tree stands that abut a steeply sloping tea plantation. Stone sculptures mark the direction to the Great Mountain. We gave the building absolutely top marks for architecture and interior design. Modern, clear... More

My wife and I stayed for one night in October and thoughly enjoyed the stay. The service is excellent and the views from the lounge is extraordinary of the bay and Mt. Fuji when it is not shrouded in the clouds. We will definitely stay again when we are in Shizuoka.
