I spent 14 days in Japan and stayed in 5 different Ryokan/Inn and I would rank this inn 2nd out of the five. Locationwise, it is just a 5 mins walk from the train station but it is a bit tricky finding the place as the entrance is narrow and easily overlooked.

The room is small, simple and clean but when you are in Kawaguchiko, it is unlikely that you want to stay in the room long when you are surrounded by all the natural beauty. The owner is friendly and speaks a bit of English. The inn offers 2 variety of breakfast, Japanese and Western. Japanese breakfast is worth a try (though it is more expensive and you will need to pre-order a day before) while the Western breakfast is mainly toast. Frankly, there is nothing fantastic about the food but you will find that the choice of eating places is limited in the small town anyway. Furthermore, on a good day, you will be able to see Mt Fuji from the dinning area, which is the best part of the stay.

Free internet, guidebooks, coffee etc are available.

The only thing I don't like about the inn is the common bath area which can be quite crowded during peak hours. There is also no lift available, only stairs so it might not be very suitable for those with elderly.

I will definitely return to this inn if I go back again!

Pros:
location! - Its the most convenient hostel we stayed in in Japan - just across the train station
price - reasonably-priced.
free internet - at the basement
free coffee and tea - at the basement
Bike for hire

Cons:
Separate toilets & baths (not ensuite) - just a personal issue of mine. others, I'm sure, won't mind as much.
No elevators. On the other hand - good for exercise :-)

Overall - we would still recommend this!

We stayed here for our honeymoon for two nights as we wanted to climb Mount Fuji. The hotel is perfectly located opposite the rail and bus station and you can see Mount Fuji from the front. The rooms are clean and traditional Japanese style. There is a shared bathroom which was clean. On the top floor there was a hot spring bath which was great after climbing the mountain! The facilities are excellent with free coffee and tea, internet terminals and washing machines. It has a practical feel to it and the staff are very friendly and helpful with planning your trip around the local area. The hotel has a backpacker feel to it but with more comfortable and higher end facilities. The breakfast was our favourite in the whole of Japan and good value. There are plently of restaurants nearby but just beware things shut down early in the evening and there is not much night life. I would definitely stay here again.

this hotel was in a very good location, within view of the train station. it was a handy place to stay, but did not offer anything in terms of character or uniqueness. The room was clean, but the communal area was messy, with limited refreshments compared to the description. If you are tavelling on a budget then this is a good option, however if you are looking for something with more Japanese character then you may want to look elsewhere. The staff were ok, but nothing special in terms of friendlness or helpfulness. The baths were nice.

I booked thru hostel bookers, hosteworld was down. Anyhow I wanted to stay in Ryokan at least one day in Japan. In the Tokyo area they were more than double, and hard to find ones with availability. This place was great. I had Rm 315, and the facilities were across the hall, and open 24/7. They have an ofuro similar to an onsenji (Japanese) bath on the 4 floor, with a picture window facing Mt. Fuji. They have one for men, and a seperate one for women. Also on the fourth floor is the showers, open till 11pm so as not to disturb guest below late nite. Typical Ryokan, leave your shoes at entrance, and where slippers inside, then leave slippers prior to entering room with woven mat flooring. The group room gives you option of Japanese or western sleeping. A 3/4(high) bunk with a great mattress, and slip sheet comforter, and buckwheat pillow. Or below traditional Japanese sleep set up with curtains to close off your area.
Note: The Direct Bus from Shinjuku is the best way from Tokyo area. two hours including a few stops. The train took over 4 hrs, and I had to unexpextedly change direct route trains 4 times. 4 times carrying luggage up two flights of stairs, then down two flights on another platform! Also it was cheaper!, and more comfortable!
