Fuji Onsenji Yumedono Ryokan

Fuji Onsenji Yumedono Ryokan

What kind of onsen ryokan is Fuji Onsenji Yumedono Ryokan?

This is a small luxury onsen ryokan near Mt. Fuji.  We felt the luxury and authenticity at once.  There are 9 rooms only.  We never met other guests even though the property was fully booked.  Absolutely the ryokan completely emphasizes private experiences for each guest.  If you are looking for luxury Japanese rooms with private hot springs near Mt.Fuji, you should stay here.  Each room has a wonderful private hot spring.  Perhaps if this is your first time staying at ryokans, I would recommend it.  Facilities tend to be the latest.  Most of the rooms have twin beds.  You don’t need to sleep on Japanese mattresses in tatami rooms.  On the other hand, if you are looking for rooms with amazing views of Mt.Fuji, this is not.  The location is near Mt.Fuji, but there is no Mt.Fuji view.  The ambiance is charming, quaint, and serene.  The property would be great for couples, families, or small groups.  *Currently they don’t accept solo travelers.  Once we entered the property, immediately the staff escorted us to a beautiful tatami room.  Then we checked in and out at our room while having match tea.

Is the location easy to access?

The location is near Kawaguchiko Station.  It takes 5min by car.  A free shuttle service is available from the station.  You need to book it in advance.

Rooms I would recommend?

If you are going to stay here, I would recommend an executive Japanese Suite.  Everything, such as interior, furniture, and architecture, etc., is truly incomparable.  If you are keen on Japanese architecture, you must be exited.  The room is spacious, user-friendly, and comfortable.  You can chill out here while viewing a well-kept traditional garden.

How about toiletries & in-room amenities?

All of the amenities are taken care of including enough toiletries, pajamas, yukatas, samue outfits, and a green tea set, etc.  Room service is not available.  There is a vending machine for soft drinks in-house.  DVD players, humidifiers, and bicycles are available for borrowing if you request.  Free Wifi reception was sometimes slow in our room.

How about In-house Facilities?

Unluckily, there is no communal hot spring, no lounge, and no library to relax.  That’s too bad.  Then there is no convenience store nearby.  You may want to buy your necessities before coming here.  Then the property is not a universal design, but there are few steps in-house.  Once you enter your room, you wouldn’t need to move around during your stay.  If you bring people with weak feet, you may want to inform the staff in advance, as they can arrange a room near the entrance.

How about meals?

The kaiseki food experience for dinner and breakfast was wonderful.  The portion tends to be big.  All meals are served in your room.  Breakfast starts from 8:00-8:30.  Dinner starts from 18:00-18:00.  If you have dinner on the property you need to check in by 17:00.  *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.  You may want to book a room including meals unless you have a car.

My impressions

The staff tends to be patchy.  If you expect 5-star hotel service, this is not.  Overall the hardware is outstanding but the software, personnel, and service are not of the same class and still have a long way to go.  The price range would be reasonable.  If you want to get much of an immersive “small luxury onsen ryokan” experience as you expect, the onsen ryokan would be perfect.  Have a nice trip!  Welcome to receive any questions about Fuji Onsenji Yumedono Ryokan 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 Fuji Onsenji Yumedono on Booking.com or Agoda
