Saw Mt Fuji after breakfast, just walk out to the terrace outside the restaurant and there it was it all its spendour. Pros - Great place to stay in very convenient and near the ropeway stop with indoor and outdoor onsens. Cons - Rooms are old and kind of faded and the bathrooms are small typical of Japanese hotels. By the way the onsen is closed from 10am to 5pm ie middle of the day no onsen when I was there. Wanted a last soak before leaving in mid morning and was told it was closed. To be fair I think the front desk told me when I was checking in but couldn't quite manage to remember all the timings for dinner, breakfast and onsen.
Getting to the hotel - the ropeway stops running at around 5pm, I missed that and had to take a bus there just outside Souzan ropeway/train station. Stood in the rain for 20mins waiting for the bus and was panicking in case in doesn't come. The last bus is also quite early around 7 plus if I recall correctly. So be careful about the timing if you are taking public transport.
Also you kind of have to eat dinner at the hotel, there is nothing around it within walking distance, no shops. restaurants etc.
