“A nice get-away”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2011

Stayed here with my family for a weekend get-away from the busy Tokyo-life in October 2011. Kawaguchiko is a nice weekend trip from Tokyo, only about one and a half hour in smooth traffic. The hotel is a traditional Japanese Inn, however rather big so it feels like a hotel. Difference is that dinner is served in the room, and after dinner futon-service comes in the room and prepares the futons for sleeping. Our two boys quite liked the co-sleeping arrangements and the 'life on the floor' (dinner table and chairs are also Japanese style) - different from what we're used to but certainly enjoyed by the younger ones (and then also by the parents). Dinner was delicious, Japanese so a lot of little tastings of fish, tofu, sushi, but also pork or beef, prepared on a table grill in the room or the like. For the children, an age appropriate menu with several little tastings was also provided - and they loved it also. Breakfast is served in the restaurant/ dining area and features mainly Japanese items but also bread, yogurt, fresh fruit, eggs - and the service is so high that if you ask for something the staff will go out of their way to prepare it for you.
Service was throughout our stay excellent - waiters were very helpful and patient, we were appointed our own 'hostess' who spoke well English and was very helpful in getting us settled at the hotel. She was our 'hostess' throughout the weekend.
Unfortunately, the hotel itself is of an older date and the decor and style is not pretty. However, located right on Kawaguchiko lake, the view of the lake and the majestic Mt. Fuji as a back-drop, it was easy enough to ignore the ignore the eye sores of the hotel and instead enjoy the beauty of the nature. As far as activities, one must bank on nice weather - most activities are out-doors and it's no fun if it rains. We spent a rainy morning at a monkey show which was OK for the kids, and could have spent part of a rainy afternoon in the onsen which allow little children. Lucky for us, the skies cleared and we were able to go on a boat on the lake, and also ascend a small rope way to Mt. Kachi Kachi, allowing for breath taking views of the lake and Mt. Fuji. Sunday on the way home we stopped by Fuji Kuy Highlands, a large amusement park with some crazy rides which to our luck our kids are too small for. Instead we enjoyed the Thomas the Train land which is an area of the park and very welcoming for younger children. Spending 3 hours in the amusement park, needless to say, it was a nice and quiet ride back to Tokyo.
