Tominoko Hotel
Reviewed July 16, 2012

I've made my booking directly with the hotel through email, in case you don't know -> tominoko@mfi.or.jp , the rate i got was 8000Yen + 150Yen Spa fee per person per night including two meals. They accept credit card, pay at check out. They provide free pickup from kawaguchiko station from 1400-1800pm. Journey about 5 minutes. Just ask the information counter staff to help you call the hotel. They're very friendly! Location was good, retro bus stop at Kukuna hotel next door. Wifi available at lobby.

I booked the 'terrace room', which is the room on the 6th floor with balcony. The view was amazing! But unfortunately i cannot view the whole Mount Fuji from my room due to weather conditions. All rooms are twin rooms. Not big but good enough space. The hotel is quite old so most of the furniture design is 'old fashion', but nevertheless it was clean and well maintained. There were chocolate & sour plum sample given for free. You can purchase it at the lobby's souvenir shop. I love the sour plum very much! There's a shower and a separate toilet in the room. We tried the hot spring there indoor & outdoor, not very big but good enough. Vending machines and massage chair are available outside the onsen.

The meal was buffet dinner.Starts at 6pm, kinda crowded when it begins. Quite a lot of variety including grilled salmon, grilled beef slices, sushi, soba, curry, miso soup,rice,spaghetti, oden, Houtou ( the famous yamanashi dish), fruits,cakes etc. We ordered crab legs for an additional 1000Yen + , not quite remember. Most food are japanese. Most guests i met was locals, chinese and thais. Breakfast was also buffet, sausages, hams, eggs, breads, croissant,congee,rice,salmon etc are served.

It was a very memorable stay as the view was great and was able to see winter fireworks at Oike park right at your balcony! Totally worth it! I will come back again!

One of the cheapest place to stay with a breath taking view of Fujisan in every room. Seems like it's the norm to serve 2 meals to every guest (breakfast and dinner) which are always plentiful. Staff is courteous and aimed to help even though they seem to be overwhelmed at times as the hotel serves a huge amount of foreign guests.

One night, I had the urge to drink sake and eat peanuts, like locals do, at 11:30pm and the manager behind the concierge desk helped changed coins for my 5000 yen note, brought me into the already closed cafeteria, switch on the sake vending machine and let me buy what I needed.

They also make it a point to wave off every tour bus leaving the hotel which is probably the epitome of that famous Japanese service culture that we hear so much about.

We stayed at Tominoko for one night during spring and we have wonderful mt Fuji view and lake Kawakuchi from our room. The big bath also very relax and again with mt. Fuji view for outdoor bath access.
We booked room included dinner and breakfast both meal are buffet style.
Dinner has variety of choice and delicious with bit more crowded as several tour groups stay here. Breakfast has less choice but still satisfy.
Thanks to hotel guy who drive us to station from hotel at our check out.

Room Tip: Please specify room on the kawaguchi lake side for mt Fuji view from wonsow room.

Good: Mt Fuji view from room, buffet style breakfast and dinner

Drawback: Small and without circulation flow open air hot spring bath, no private hot spring, free wireless internet spot at lobby only, no safe/locker

Note: Low rate for sleep quality because one of the spring mattress had spoiled

=====================================================================
Hotel provide free pick up service from Kawaguchigo station. Do not feel is within walking distance. But location is good because all rooms have Mt Fuji view. However, the window cannot be opened.

Not sure if any convenience shop nearby. But vending machine selling cup noodles is available if you feel hungry after onsen during midnight. One thing to mention, main door of the hotel will be closed at 12 midnight.

In general, all staffs are very friendly and provide good service, especially the normal shift front desk staffs, who can speak English well. However, the early morning front desk staff never allow to change towel for me even I had mentioned mine was dirty. I understand that there is no manpower during early morning so I went to the reception and made such request, but still not successful. Slightly disappointed about this issue although this may be the hotel rule.

All rooms are standard type with 2 single beds, big and clean. There are special rooms on Level 6, which is not mentioned in their English website. The special room should have balcony, but couldn't find the rate for the room on its Jap website as well.

Black paints could be found on the wall and bed frames, suspected due to the damages caused during renovation. One of the spring mattress had spoiled but we discovered it too late. Had informed the staff during check out. He sincerely apologised and gave us some post cards as a token of appreciation. Hopefully they will fix the problem soon.

2 complimentary Mt Fuji mineral waters provided because we booked through their website. Crabs were specially served during dinner as well without extra charges.

Dinner (and breakfast) is in buffet style. Long serving hour so you do not need to rush back to hotel before 6pm. Quite a good variety. Highly recommend the super milky vanilla ice cream. Acceptable food quality although it may not be as high as those serving Jap style dinner set in other hotels. However this buffet is much more suitable for vegetarian.

Hotel has a souvenir shop. Handphone charging spot and pc with internet are available at the lobby (with charge). Free wireless internet spot is only available at lobby. The area is small but not much ppl using it during our stay.

Only public hot spring available. Big and nice pool. Has Mt Fuji view as well. It will be better if the window's glass is clearer. Open air hot spring bath is small and has no circulation flow, hence the water is slightly dirty as compare to the indoor pool. What a pity.

Overall, this hotel is a very good choice especially considering its room rate. There are another 2 nicer hotels just beside it, however price is at least double.

When you first walk into the room at the Tominoko Hotel at Fujikawaguchiko the view of Mt Fuji is breathtaking. The staff are very helpful and speak English.
The accommodation price is very reasonable and includes breakfast and dinner.
I would come to Japan just to ride the train from Tokyo to Fujikawaguchiko and stay at the Tominoko hotel to sit and watch the views of the sacred mountain especially with the Sumo wrestling on the T.V. It was fantastic.
