An ideal location to stay during your visit to Mt. Fuji and Lake Kawaguchiko. Just across from the Kawaguchiko Sation. All the guest rooms are Japanese-style. Mt. Fuji can be seen from the guest rooms and baths. If you plan to climb Mt. Fuji, its fifth station is located only 40 minutes away by bus.

Very good location! The hostel is right in front of Kawaguchiko Station and close to amenities. Convenient stores, restaurants, shopping places were just within walking distance. You'll be able to see the beautiful Mount Fuji on a good day too! Very helpful and hospitable owners. We were allowed to leave our luggages/backpacks at the hostel when we went for our climb at no extra fee. Some of us were leaving for Tokyo right after our descend and our shower fee at the hostel was discounted. Loved the Japanese breakfast. Recommended for solo travellers as well as groups! Note: The Japanese are very particular about footwear and where you place them! So, be respectful, watch and learn from the locals, hostel owners and their staff on where they place their shoes/boots, and where they put on those sandals that they provide for you. When in doubt, just ask!😉

For anyone on a budget, their rates start at roughly 4200 yen/night including the 5% tax - however the prices do change by season and room availability For pure convenience, I give this lodging a 5 star. It is literally across the street from Kawaguchiko Station Inn, so you don't have to worry about transporting your luggage to yet another location. The rooms are simple, tatami mats with down comforter, plenty of room. There are TVs however, please note that all the programming available was in Japanese. There is free wifi, but it can be pretty slow especially at night, when I assume that everyone is back from their hikes and trying to access the Wi-Fi at the same time. I would highly recommend Kawaguchiko Station Inn for a convenient stay near Lake Kawaguchiko for an amazing view of Mt Fuji and easy access to the red line buses to travel the rest of the lake as long as you curb your expectations for a budget friendly stay. *Tip* they are cash only and there are no non-smoking rooms according to their website. However there were no smells of smoke in our room during the stay

This Inn was our life saver. We came to Kawaguchiko Station with no itinerary even hotel booking. When we reached there, almost all the guesthouse were full. Luckily, this Inn came to my searches. We paid around ¥6,000 for 2 person one night. Its the cheapest compared to others. The guy in the reception was really helpful and welcoming. Since it is an inn, you shouldn't expect a hotel kind of service and facilities but I can guarantee that the room is clean and decent enough if you are just looking for a place to sleep. They have typical Japanese type of room with a small table, tv, thermos and a pair of yukata. The matress, pillow and blanket has to be pulled inside the big drawer. They don't serve breakfast but offers free tea and coffee in the common area at the basement. Toilets are common and they only have public bath area overlooking Mt. Fuji's. The Inn is located across the station. There are several restaurants around the area and souvernir shop beside the building.

The hotel condition is average, the good thing is location which it is near from train station and bus stop. This hotel is also near mini shops like Seven Eleven but it's a bit far from restaurants. I can see the Fuji's mountain from my room with nice mountain view ...

Just across the street from the train station, Room, common area and bathroom are clean, futon and pillow are quite ok not too hard, there is one shower room if you're not into ofuro, old washing machine (but working) and dryer ... . Usable towel (old, enough size and not too thin). We did not try the cafeteria so can't comment. But no elevator so ask for rooms in 2nd floor, facing the street & Fuji-san, the road was quite when we stayed there. There are complimentary tea, water, keetle in the room.
