Mizno Hotel

Mizno Hotel

What kind of onsen hotel is Mizno Hotel?

This is a cozy resort hotel with amazing Mt.Fuji views.  If this is your first time visiting Japan, I would recommend it.  Perhaps, if you are looking for boutique hotels with amazing views of Mt.Fuji, you should stay here.  On the other hand, if you are looking for a ryokan adventure, you might want to find others.  Mizno Hotel wouldn’t be luxurious but cozy, modern, and functional.  If anything, the property would be great for young people, couples, or solo travelers, not family with small children, or not big groups.

Is the location easy to access?

The location is perfect if you want to view a dynamic Mt.Fuji.  Free shuttle service is available from Kawaguchiko Station between 15:00 and 18:00.   You need to call the staff when you reach the station.

Rooms I would recommend?

Mizno Hotel
If you are going to stay here, I would recommend rooms with balconies on a high floor.  You can view a dynamic Mt.Fuji while chilling out at the balcony in good weather.  That’s precious time.  Most of the rooms tend to be cramped but user-friendly.   There is no room with private onsen.

How about toiletries & in-room amenities?

All of the amenities are taken care of including minimum toiletries, yukatas, a coffee machine with capsules, tea bags, and bottled water, etc.  Humidifiers, CD players, and bicycles are available for borrowing.  You should go cycling around Lake Kawaguchi in good weather.  Then room service is not available but complimentary coffee, English tea, cookies are available in the lobby.  You can relax after meals while having coffee.  Then the free WiFi reception was good in our room.  Some PCs are placed at the lounge on 1F to use someone.

How about In-house Facilities?

There are indoor and outdoor communal hot springs.  All of them are open from 15:00 to 10:00 the following morning.  They would be cramped.  Also, it seems that there is a private family hot spring in-house although I didn’t notice.  It’s open from 16:00-23:00   Payment is required for 45min.  *Please note that if you have tattoos and want to use the communal baths, use reserved private one instead.  Then the Sky Bar on the rooftop was amazing.  Don’t forget to visit there after dinner.  The bar is open between June and Sep only.  Then there is a laundromat.  There is a vending machine for drinks on 2F.  There is no convenience store within walking distance.  You might want to buy your necessities before coming here.  Then Mizno Hotel is a universal design and wheelchairs are available for borrowing.

How about meals?

The food experience for dinner and breakfast was just divine.  You can choose either Japanese Kaiseki or French cuisine for dinner and breakfast when you check-in at the reception.  We tried French dinner and the food was prepared with much detail and care.  The portion tends to be small, though.  All meals are served in the restaurant on 2F.  French dinner starts at 18:30.  Japanese kaiseki dinner starts from 18:00 to 19:30.  *You need to check in by 19:00 if you have dinner on the property.  Breakfast is from 7:00 to 9:30.  *Please note that inform the staff when you book a room with meals if you have any food allergies.  They probably wouldn’t be able to prepare alternative food if you request on that day.  Then, as far as I know, there is no nice restaurant around the property.  Local papa-mama shops are closing early.  The location is out of the way.  You may want to book a room including meals unless you have a car.

My impressions

The staff tends to be sophisticated, helpful, and attentive.  Overall, Mizno Hotel has good value for money.  It’s well worth it.  Then don’t forget to check a weather forecast before booking a room.  You may feel much more confined than you expect if the weather is bad.  I hope you would get much of an immersive “Mt.Fuji view” experience from the hotel.  At last, the best season to stay here would be in fall or winter.  There is a high possibility that you can view a beautiful Mt.Fuji during the seasons.  Don’t miss the best shot!  Have a nice trip!  Welcome to receive any questions about Mizno Hotel from the below space.  You need to inform the staff of your expected arrival time in advance.  Guests are required to show a photo ID and credit card upon check-in.   Check Availability and Pricing for Mizno Hotel on Booking.com or Agoda
