For this trip to Kawaguchiko, I stayed at this hotel, Konansou Fuji Kawaguchiko Onsen Resort. It was an EXCELLENT hotel…. I booked a Room with Open-air Bath and facing the Mount Fuji side (this would be type J in the web site..).
The hotel is accessible by the red loop of the Kawaguchiko bus. The hotel is just opposite station stop 10.
Front view of the hotel:
Alternatively, call the hotel when you arrived at Kawaguchiko station and they will send a car to pick you up. They will also send you to the Kawaguchiko Station when you checked out.

The hotel facilities:
The hotel is facing Lake Kawaguchiko and you can have an great view of the lake from the hotel:
Here’s the room I booked. Lovely !!
It is a Japanese style tatami room so it comes with the bedding and blankets:
We also had dinner in the room 🙂
Of course, the highlight of the room is the open air bath with Mt Fuji view:
The view of Mt Fuji from the open air bath in the evening is amazing
Here’s a video of how the open air bath… with Mt Fuji view (and I assured you that the view is not fake.. it was really Mt Fuji.. I was very lucky to capture this video !)
The hotel itself is, of course, a hot spring hotel and has separate onsen bath for men and women.
Some photos of the men’s onsen:
I highly recommend the private onsen bath. It is not expensive but you do need to book it so that you can get the time slot you wanted.
Private bath comes with great view of Mt Fuji too:
And here’s a video of how the private onsen bath at this same hotel is… a great view of Mt Fuji and a great place for you and your loved one 🙂
I highly recommend this hotel in Kawaguchiko if you do visit it. The views are amazing !!
