Kaze no Terrace Kukuna Hotel

Kaze no Terrace Kukuna Hotel

What kind of resort onsen hotel is Kaze no Terrace Kukuna Hotel?

This is not a luxury, but cozy.  If this is your first time visiting Japan, I would recommend it.  Perhaps, if you prefer modern hotels to ryokans, you should stay here.  The ambiance is cozy, lively, and family-oriented.  This is a lovely place, well-designed and decorated.  The property would be great for couples, family, small groups, but not solo travelers.   Also, this is child-friendly.  Staff provides amenities, samue outfits, and meals for small children if you request in advance.  There is a children’s playroom on 1F.

Is the location easy to access?

The location is near Kawaguchiko Station.  It takes 5min by car from the station.  Free shuttle service is available between 15:00 and 21:00.  You need to book it in advance.

Rooms I would recommend?

Kaze no Terrace Kukuna Hotel
If you are going to stay here, I would recommend rooms with private hot springs on the terrace on the club floor.  It’s truly worth staying it.  The rooms wouldn’t be user-friendly but truly relaxing, stylish, and brand new.  You can chill out at the private onsen while viewing a spectacular Mt.Fuji.  That’s precious time.

How about toiletries & in-room amenities?

All of the amenities are taken care of including enough toiletries, pajamas, yukatas, samue outfits, a green tea set, herb cookies, and bottled water, etc.  Room service is not available, but complimentary coffee, pure juices, cookies, etc., at the lounge, are available.  Also, there is a vending machine in-house.  There is a convenience store nearby.  The free WiFi reception was good in the property.  Also, I noticed that there was a PC to use someone.

How about In-house Facilities?

There are some wonderful indoor and outdoor communal hot springs on the top floor.  The water temperature tends to be lukewarm.  The spring quality wouldn’t be special.  The indoor communal ones are open from 14:00-23:30, 24:30-10:00 the following morning.  The outdoor communal ones are open from 5:00 to 23:30.  If you want to view a beautiful Mt.Fuji, you should soak in the outdoor baths in the early morning before breakfast.  There is a high possibility that you can see the mountain more clearly.  Also, there is a private family hot spring.  It costs 3,000JPY for 50min.  It’s open from 6:00-9:50, 15:30-22:30.  *Please note that if you have tattoos and want to use the communal baths, use a reserved private family hot spring instead, or book a room with a private hot spring.  Then Kaze no Terrace Kukuna Hotel is universal design and wheelchairs are available for borrowing.  If you bring people with weak feet, you may want to inform the staff in advance as they can arrange a room near the lift.

How about meals?

You can choose either Teppanyaki or western cuisine for dinner.  The portion tends to be big.  Teppanyaki was simply wonderful.  Dinner starts from 17:30 or 19:30.  You need to book a table in advance.  If you are a gourmet, I would rather recommend Teppanyaki cuisine.  You can fully enjoy the food while viewing a sunset with Mt.Fuji in good weather.  *Please note that inform the staff when you book a room with dinner if you have any food allergies.  They probably wouldn’t be able to prepare alternative food if you request on that day.  Then buffet-style breakfast was also good, especially French toast.   The buffet was not extensive, but the food quality was great.  Then, as far as I know, there is no nice restaurant around the property.  The location is out of the way.  Local papa-mama shops are closing early.  You may want to book a room including meals unless you have a car.

My impressions

The staff tends to be not sophisticated, but friendly.  This is Yamanashi prefecture.  I guess it’s OK.  At last, don’t forget to check a weather forecast before booking a room.  That’s the most important.  Have a nice trip!  Welcome to receive any questions about Kaze no Terrace Kukuna Hotel from the below space.    If you check-in after 18:00, you need to inform the staff in advance.  Check Availability and Pricing for the hotel on Agoda
