What I like: Clean, convenient, within walking distance to eki and many shops and good view of Mt Fuji What I dislike: Based on prior experience staying in half board hotel, I don't think I got what I paid for. The dinner was ok, breakfast was not great.

We had a nice time, the rooms a bit old but comfortable. Only toilet in room could use an update. Food and onsen were really good. Good deal for this price

The staff is attentive and helpful. Very pleasant with the shuttle service from the station. The lake and fujisan can view from our room. I am happy that the security during night shift is so responsible, he knock our door non stop because he saw our key was hanging outside the door. We are appreciate for the help. Arigatou gozaimasu to all your staff.

Kawaguchiko - JKS
Beautiful room in a clean hotel, handy to the centre of town. However there was initial confusion at the check-in around additional charges which were forced upon us before they would let us have the room key. Even although we had shown them documented evidence that " Guaranteed & paid in Full" was not understood by the check-in staff.
